Brooklyn and the Bees: Talk and Taste with Borough Bees
Brooklyn Historical Society, $10
Thursday, April 23, 2015 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
You’ve heard of urban gardening, but have you heard of urban beekeeping? Timothy O’Neal and Shelly Fank of Borough Bees gives us the history behind this increasingly popular enterprise that is quickly joining the illustrious ranks of Brooklyn-made gastronomy, and learn about the role of honeybees and other pollinators in our local, national, and global food systems. The talk is followed by deliciously sweet tastings, featuring raw honeys, both varietal and local.
