Laverdiere, who works on the farm, was pulling panels from hives for Wiencek, a beekeeper from Kingfield who volunteered to help with the Earth Day open house. Farm owners Gloria and Gregg Varney invited people to come watch and chat about bee health and gave out organic wildflower seeds. (Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal)
