Acushnet honey bees.

What does a Apponequet Junior, a New Bedford Fifth Grader and a Mattapoisett Grandfather have in common? Acushnet honey bees of course!

Head Gardener and Chief Bee Keeper, Bill O”Keefe, is teaching Rosie and Sofia all about honey bees. How good is that? (Other photos HERE)

We are in our fifth season of growing organic vegetables and beekeeping. If you want to help us with our outdoor vegetable garden, drop-in and let us know!

 

 

BEE A VOLUNTEER!

Why we volunteer

40,000 New Volunteers arrive at GiftsToGive

April 4, 2019. Acushnet, Massachusetts

Too windy to go sailing or maneuvering a kite. Way, way too windy to fly, especially if you’re a honey bee! Which turns out to be perfect for motivating 40,000 volunteers into their new home! Seems the bees were in a hurry to get out of the wind, into their shelters and anxious to free their Queens.
