Beekeeper Peter Best has 10 hives of honey bees, located on one of the north fields, at Riverdale Farm and Forest. The hives are located close to the river for fresh water, lots of wild honeysuckle, apple trees, and clover in the spring. They forage all Summer in the fields and gardens of Inglewood. They are now collecting their last pollen of the year from the goldenrods and asters.
Peter will be sharing his passion for, and knowledge of, honeybees at 11 am on Saturday, October 1, at the Riverdale Jubilee “Open Mic”.
