"They'll give an overview of beekeeping and its history, discuss seasonal plants and how they determine the kind of honey the bees produce," reads the Center for Cultural & Eco Tourism's press release.

Tuesday's discussion also will hit on the issue of Colony Collapse Disorder and how Chinese-imported honey is not 100 percent pure.

The Backyard Series is an all-ages, free event hosted by CCET and supported by Acadiana Center for the Arts, Louisiana Division of the Arts and the Vermilionville Foundation.
