This hands-on workshop will introduce you to honey as you've never known it before! You will learn how and why honey is produced by the bees, some of its uses throughout history, and its amazing medicinal and nutritional properties. Together we will explore how the bees carry the benefits of the flowers and herbs from which they collect nectar back to their hives to create amazing medicinal honey varietals 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 all workshop participants will make and taste a medicinal honey syrup together.
The workshop will be led by Weavers Way Program Coordinator Stephanie, who is also a local beekeeper and author of The Benevolent Bee.
