Nash's final film

SEQUIM — The Winter Film Series at Nash's Farm Store will come to a close with the documentary “Eating Alabama” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 2.

As they navigate the agro-industrial gastronomical complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories.

Nash's Farm Store is located at 4681 Sequim-Dungeness Way.

WWIN scholarships

The beginner class will include basic bee ecology and communication, why they are a “super-organism” and the importance of honeybee genetic diversity.

Hive setup, obtaining bees and catching a swarm also will be covered.

The intermediate level is for graduates of the beginner class and those who already have hives.

It includes in-depth relationships with bees and the intimate workings of the colony and brood nest.

Participants will learn about queenless hives, over-wintering and extracting products.
