Honey Tasting and Workshop
Stephanie Bruneau
Owner, The Benevolent Bee

In this delicious and fun hands-on workshop, you will learn how and why honey is produced, some of its uses throughout history, and its amazing medicinal and nutritional properties. We will explore how bees carry the benefits of the flowers from which they collect nectar back to their hives to create amazing medicinal honey varieties -- such as Manuka honey from the New Zealand tea tree, and others. The workshop will include a tasting of local and varietal honeys, and a hands-on project where participants together will make and taste a medicinal honey syrup. In her apiary, Stephanie harvests honey, collects wax, and teaches about bees and bee behavior. We will meet at Bloomfield Farm. Look for the paved road across Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance. Park in the lot and follow the signs to the Horticulture Center.
