Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
When most people think of bee stings, they are something that happen — with reactions ranging from merely somewhat annoying, to “ouch” to perhaps even anaphylaxis. Rarely do we ponder that some people seek stings for their medicinal benefits.
Our October speaker, Ross Conrad, will speak on Apitherapy – Healing and Health With Products From the Hive. Honeybee and hive products have historically played a large role in disease care and prevention. Today science is finally catching up to what naturalists, herbalists, and acupuncturists have known for years. Covered are the healing properties of Honey, Pollen, Propolis, Royal Jelly, and Honeybee Venom.
The meeting is at the Kalamazoo Nature Center, at 6:30 p.m., and is free. We hope to see you there!
The Kalamazoo Bee Club provides beekeeping education, support, and bee-related services to the greater Kalamazoo area. We’re an open club—anyone can be a member; no membership fee or dues are collected. We provide education through monthly programs, hands-on days in season at the club apiaries, and our annual Bee School.
A big thank you to the following organizations, businesses, and individuals for their generous financial support of this year’s Kalamazoo Bee School:
