Protecting our Bees!

As most of you know, we are going to be blessed with two new honey bee hives this spring, tended by our resident beekeeper, Landings resident Joann Lyon. Bees are crucial to the pollination of our plants, and the last hives that Joann set up never made it. We are not totally sure what the problem was, but one suspected cause may have been chemicals that farmers were using. Please be cautious in what you use in your garden and farm as organically as possible.  Should you choose to apply pesticides on your plants, please use before sunrise or after sunset when the bees are less active.
