Beekeeping at Andrew Mountain Park

 

Naugatuck Park & Recreation Dept. is opening a Bee Sanctuary at Andrew Mountain Park.

In addition to providing additional pollination to both Andrew Mtn. Park and the Community Garden, our goal is to help increase the honeybee population.

Naugatuck Park & Recreation is partnering with Peter Ferreira on this project.

Peter Ferreira is a third-generation beekeeper. He has been very active in the beekeeping industry as a beekeeper, spokesperson, and educator and is presently obtaining his Master Beekeeper Certification from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. He is currently a professional beekeeper and keeps his hives in his home apiary and other locations in Connecticut.

 

Park & Rec is offering Introductory Beekeeping courses by Peter Ferreira and hands on experience at our new Beekeeping area at Andrew Mtn. Park!
