what a good thing for kids to do. any time they are caring for something else it seems to be a life changing experience! i think you have some good company in your state. lots of beekeepers from FL on here.
if you would put your location in your profile you won't have to keep reminding us of where you are :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
