March 18th Potluck with Beekeeper John Emery

Join us on Tuesday, March 18th for our first potluck of 2014! Meet our special guest John Emery, beekeeper and owner of Spotted  Duck Apiary.   John will be back at Prairie Oaks again this spring, tending his hives on the Devine-Johnson prairies located behind the POI farm campus.

We depend on bees and other pollinators, but bee habitat and populations are in danger. Come share a meal and learn about this important issue and here John’s plans for 2014. We will gather at 6, eat at 6:30 at Harvest House, 1200 W South Street, Belle Plaine. White bean and kale soup, bread and beverages will be served. You can bring a dish to share, if you like.  RSVP on Facebook.
