The public is invited to Green Drinks McHenry County on Wednesday, March 6th from 5pm-7pm at Duke’s Alehouse & Kitchen, 110 N Main Street in Crystal Lake. Head upstairs at Duke’s for info and inspiration, business and pleasure. Come talk about “greening” the future with others. Must be 21 to purchase alcohol - non-alcoholic drinks are available, of course!
The topic this month is Bees!
Doug Hawthorne, Vice President of the Northern Illinois Beekeepers Association, will be speaking about bees: What is the State of Bees in McHenry County? Bee prepared with questions! Doug loves talking bees and honey so plan on fun!
Doug has been a beekeeper for 11 years. He knows enough to recognize a honeybee from a wasp but feels that he has only touched on the knowledge available on raising bees. On the other hand, he has raised honey each and every year - enough to cover out-of-pocket expenses. A hobby that only costs you time is a good hobby, according to Doug. Recently, he has begun the process of learning how to make beeswax candles.
There will be an information table set up, and you are welcome to bring information about your green products and services each month to share. Additional parking is available at the train station.
