Beehive Project March 2017 1


140 Beehives destroyed - Conetoe needs your help


As recently reported by the Rocky Mount Telegram, hurricane Matthew destroyed 140 beehives and bees, which resulted in a severe setback for the educational youth programs associated with the Conetoe Family Life Center, founded by the Rev. Richard Joyner. The beekeeping and garden activities create a practical classroom for the scientific, economic and social skills that are necessary in today’s society. “Beehives for Conetoe” is a joint effort of area churches and other organizations to support the beehive operation.


This is how you can help:

* Come to the church basement at Good Shepherd and help putting together beehives. See schedule here.

* Provide funds to buy the frames (inside the box) for the first 124 beehives - we need $8,000. To donate, please make a check out to the Church of the Good Shepherd, memo “Beehives for Conetoe" or give online.
