On Saturday Sept. 10th at 1:00 McCue's Garden Center, located at 200 Cambridge Rd. in Woburn, will be holding a free lecture on bees and beekeeping led by Nancy Bently Mangion.  Nancy is the owner of the BeeKeeper’s Warehouse in Woburn, Ma. www.beekeeperswarehouse.com.  She has been a beekeeper for 30 years and considered an expert in her industry.  She will share her years of experience and knowledge of bees and why they are so important to farming, the home garden, and especially vegetable gardening. 

This is a free lecture and is open to all.  Local honey and other honey products will be available for purchase.  Refreshments will be served… “honey themed” of course.  The staff at McCue’s will also compile a selection of perennials that sustain the bee community in our area and offer them at 30% for all guests who attended the lecture.
