The Startup Cost of Beekeeping - by Joet Reoma. This talk will highlight the many sources of cost in beekeeping startups. Just as the startup cost of beekeeping can be a barrier, there are ways to minimize the high cost of starting beekeeping. Joet Reoma has 8 years of beekeeping as a hobby. He started learning about bees from Dr. Meghan Milbrath when Project Grow invited Meghan to hold a series of beekeeping workshops in 2011 at the Leslie Discovery Garden. He is interested in forming a beekeeping guild or coop for new beekeepers as a way to spread the startup cost of beekeeping. Program Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, 734-972-8875.
