Honey Tasting & Honey Market

Honeybees are an essential part of our farm and food system because they pollinate our food crops. In the United States they pollinate one third of our food supply. But around the world honeybees are disappearing. Scientists are just beginning to understand the disappearance of bees and make recommendations for ways to help them thrive. This event will open your eyes to the plight of the honeybee and show you what you can do to help make a difference.
