Learn about beekeeping at Home and Garden Show

The Home and Garden Show opens Thursday at DeVos Place.

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - With over 400 exhibitors, the Grand Rapids Home and Garden Show will be showing off the best products and services to freshen up your home for spring.

But, it doesn't stop there.

One exhibitor will be there to address the dwindling populations of wild honeybees.

Don Lam joined WZZM 13 to talk about home beekeeping. Lam says it's a hot topic because of the local food movement and dwindling populations of wild honeybees.
