This past Tuesday Raíces Cultural Center’s EcoCulture program held the first program in its new Sustainable Living Workshop Series. Raíces Board of Directors member Javier Robles gave an introductory overview of honeybees and beekeeping. Javier, who is also an attorney and a professor at Rutgers University, spoke to workshop participants about the basics of beekeeping and answered questions about bees and apiculture. Javier will lead a field trip to his beehives at Cook College this June.
