  1. The Community Farm is hosting a spring break camp for kids grades 1-6 this week, March 14-16 and hope to bring a local beekeeper to share and inspire the kids about bees and pollination. Steve Wall of Buckin Bee Honey suggested Kate Weeling as a beneficial option. If you have any ideas, would you please contact us by e-mail or at 983-3033 as soon as possible. Thanks so much.

  2. Hello! I am interested in having a hive on my 1-acre parcel in Santa Fe proper, but unsure of the city ordinances or how to find out if I even may be able to. Help please? Thank you in advance!
