Bees and More!!



“Keeping bees is all about connections: between insects and plants; between pollinators and our food supply; between the wonder of learning and the pride of directly participating, and between people who share the art, craft, and science of beekeeping with each other.” http://www.bumbabees.com/index.html

***BUMBA Beekeepers participate in numerous public demonstrations and events throughout the year. Come see them at the Spring Greening Fair this Saturday April 14th 2018!!***

Smile~! *AlpacaJoy at the Spring Greening Fair!*




“AlpacaJoy of Maryland is a home based family business. We lovingly raise beautiful huacaya alpacas and create useable products from the soft fluffy fleece that we shear from them each spring. The shearing makes them comfortable for the hot summer months and by late fall, they have grown back a warm sweater. By midwinter the alpacas have grown a dense coat of insulating fleece that keeps them toasty warm even if they choose to sleep outside during a snowstorm. Huacaya alpaca fleece is soft and warm, and when cleaned and spun up, makes a very lofty, squishy, yummy yarn.”

*****Check out AlpacaJoy of Maryland at our Spring Greening Fair Saturday this April 14th from 12noon to 5pm!*****
