EarthLinks’ 5th Annual Plant Sale wrap up

Many thanks to everyone who joined us at the EarthLinks’ 5th Annual Plant & Garden Sale.

Coast to Coast

Hey there I’m Priscilla. It’s unreal how much I’ve accomplished in the few years I’ve been at Earthlinks. I’m not saying that I’m surprised at how much I’ve achieved, being awesome is just part of the package. I  think being in a community like Earthlinks makes you want to achieve more, strive for more out of life. That’s the incredible thing  when you’re around people who support and believe in you; the things you can do are endless.

Swarm Season

     As we move into summer we are coming to the end of the bee swarm season. This is a very exciting time of year at EarthLinks. Swarm season refers to a period of time that usually lasts a few weeks during mid-spring. During this time, strong, healthy beehives have a tendency to produce a second queen and eventually a large portion of the hive will suddenly depart with the additional queen to start a new hive at a new location. If you have never seen a swarm of bees before, the first time can be a frightening experience. When a honey bee swarm emerges from their hive the sheer number of...
