This Sunday, our church's new bee communities will arrive. Andy and I are on the "Bee Team" and we will be there to welcome the newest members of the congregation. Neither of us have kept bees before. My interest in them came from a very short paper I wrote in a biology class a few years ago and I have since read some more articles and books about them. They are so fascinating the way they work together in community. I will have to share some insights from them in the coming weeks - I think we all have something to learn from bees!
In the meantime, you can check out the local beekeeping scene at http://members.aol.com/wgmiller/mcba/mcba.htm
