Spring arrives and with it the honey bees on the rooftop of SFZC’s City Center/Beginner’s Mind Temple begin to scout and forage for the sweet nectar that is nestled in nearby gardens. There are lots of choices as the bees can fly up to six miles for a source and every gardener has their own preferences. Variety is a key bounty in urban bee keeping.
The City Center Library and Reading Room is currently in need of coverage on Tuesdays, 1:30 – 7 pm. Please consider assisting us in keeping the library and sitting space accessible for residents and other members/visitors for this one full afternoon into the evening.
