CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- They are the pollinators that do the crucial work at the heart of our food system: honey bees.
And Saturday a festival in North Chesterfield celebrating these hard workers will give you the chance to have a blast and learn a thing or two about bees.
Bruce Hamon, the vice president of Rockwood Park Backyard Beekeepers, stopped by the CBS-6 studio to talk about the festival and the state of the bee population by locally and nationally.
Listen to how he describes his first “swarm” encounter with thousands of bees!
