Community gardens 'buzzing' with plans
DeKALB – Dan Kenney is looking for volunteer beekeepers.
Kenney, the co-coordinator of DeKalb County Community Gardens, is hoping to establish up to 10 colonies of honeybees, with plans to sell the honey to help offset the costs of the nonprofit’s operations.
A local farmer recently donated his used beehives to the group, Kenney said. The community gardens has a letter of agreement with the town of Cortland to use four acres of town-owned land, where the beehives will be located along with a couple of greenhouses. Kenney said he plans to line the greenhouses with heat-generating compost to sustain winter plant growth next year.
