Local Westside beekeepers Ezekiel Amador and Patrick Dobson discuss the pleasures and challenges of raising bees in an urban environment. Following the presentation at the Ruiz Branch, attendees will walk over to Switzer Neighborhood Farm to see the hives.

Please do not wear perfume or cologne to the farm, as it attracts bees.

A hat is encouraged during the time at the farm.
