Three members of WAGC attended “What’s All The Buzz About?” at Westfield Garden State Plaza on Friday, March 24, 2017. Dr. Jackie Ehlert, a founder The Havemeyer Edible Garden at Ramapo College, and John Gaut, 2nd V.P. of the Northeast N.J. Beekeepers Association spoke to an audience of about 30 attendees about the importance of the pollinators, particularly the honey bee to the environment. Information included how to start a bee hive, how to gather honey, and general upkeep of the hives. A cocktail reception followed.
