• Sitka gardening group to host presentation on beekeeping in Sitka


Join members of the Sitka Gardening and Horticulture group from Facebook as they host a presentation on beekeeping basics by Anchorage hive-meister, Joseph Linden, from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Sealing Cove Business Center on Alice Loop.

The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session featuring Bill Lehmann and Brinnen Carter, both of whom have beekeeping experience in the Lower 48. Brinnen, who works at the Sitka National Historical Park, is interested in bringing true Russian bees to Sitka (the Russians had beehives when they were in Sitka), and has a comprehensive library of beekeeping resources.
