October  2014 – Navesink Garden Club’s program for Oct. 21 is “To Bee or Not to Bee—that is the Question.”  This will be held at the Atrium at 40 Riverside Avenue in Red Bank, NJ.    The meeting and presentation  is open to the general public free of charge.

The presenter is Liz Hanson,  past president of  the Little Silver Garden Club , who is enthusiastic about her hobby as a beekeeper.   She maintains that we really cannot make the choice “Not to Bee” because bees and other pollinators provide a crucial link to most food in the human food chain.  Liz will describe the lifestyle of the inhabitants of the hive and educate those present regarding the incredible society honey bees create for themselves as they serve us.  In addition, Liz has offered to “tell the girls to step up production” in order to provide a delicious surprise at the completion of the program.
