How did the Honey Bees get here? Are Honey Bees native to the United States? Who is L. L. Langstroth and why was Connecticut so important to him? Learn how the Langstroth Hive came to be and the Honey Bee's importance to Agriculture!

This lecture is presented by Catherine Wolko, who is a second-generation Beekeeper and owner of The Humble Bee Honey company and The Hive @ The Pin, A Farm Store and honey House located in Oakville Ct. She is a listed speaker for the Federated Garden Clubs in CT, a Member of the Back Yard Beekeepers Association, The American Beekeeping Federation, and a proud member of The Connecticut Farm Bureau. She is an advocator for the Farming Community and Beekeeper and volunteers at a community food bank. She has spoken at libraries, churches, schools, symposiums and Land Trusts throughout the state of Connecticut. Her Father was an avid Gardener and became a Beekeeper by chance by answering an advertisement for free bees. Her gift for gab and love for the outdoors and honey bees was her Dad’s gift to her and to everyone she has met.
