In addition to our main speaker – Dr. John Ikerd (http://www.johnikerd.com) – we will also be joined by Ed Bell from Belfry Bees. He will bring a display hive and information on how we can protect bees. He will also have some honey! You can find more info. on him and his bees @ BelfryBees.com
In order to cover travel expenses for John who will be traveling from his home in Iowa to join us, we will be asking for a $5.00 donation from each adult who attends our Farm Day. John has offered to stay with us overnight rather than in a hotel in order to reduce his expenses and leave more for the charity. ALL donations above John’s expenses will be donated to the tornado relief fund through the Rockford branch of the Salvation Army.
