WBOY12: Appalachian Grown - Broadband and Bees

Thanks to WBOY12 for highlighting the good work our staff and beekeeper partners have put in to work to weather the COVID-19 epidemic safely. From the story:


Broadband and bees are two things that are rarely associated, but for backyard beekeepers forced to learn digitally, it can certainly make things a bit ‘bumbly’. Mark Lilly is the head beekeeper at Appalachian Beekeeping Collective, and he knows the struggle all too well.

“Most of our people [instructors] are like my age, so we’re in the, the rusty old dudes age,” he laughed. “Appalachian Headwaters is concerned for our health, obviously, and those of anybody that we’ve come in contact with. So at the present time, it’s Zoom-only.”
