    Default Community Garden

    I will be adding a hive to our community garden and would like to post some informational signs, can anyone point me toward something fun and informational. Not looking for "Honeybees sting to protect" signs, rather "view the bees with respect" and how they will benefit the garden.

    You may be best off creating your own sign with your own message. I imagine you've considered the potential liability in locating a hive at a community garden - It can certainly be done but to do it successfully will require you to stay in touch with the people managing the garden. Last year I became aware of a community garden that purchased fresh wood chips to use as weed suppression - the high sugar content of the chips was highly attractive to all sorts of stinging insects, and the beekeeper given "credit" for their presence. So carry on, but be prepared for "issues."
