This Saturday, beekeeper Ellen will be hosting a table at Great Conversations, an annual dinner event organized by the Ripon Education Foundation. The Foundation supports innovative educational opportunities for students and teachers including grants, scholarships, tutoring programs, and the high school High Mileage Vehicle team.
