What would the New Year be without honey and apples?
What would apples be without honeybees and keepers?
Why honey is sweet in more ways than one. Differences and flavors – wildflower, clover, raw. Why the final major honey harvest of the year should be in late summer. High-volume urban, raw beekeeping all over the Bay Area and how you can get some on a regular basis. And how you can help reverse the bee population decline.
Beekeeping stories from novice to seasoned: Catching swarm stories, lessons learned stories, urban stories, pollination stories, culinary stories, love stories . . .
We’ll taste a variety of raw urban honeys, too.
Jen Radtke, Co-owner/worker of Biofuel Oasis, beekeeping instructor and purveyor of beekeeping supplies.
Helene Marshall of Marshall’s Farm Honey. Marshall’s brings raw honey from 80 urban locations around the Bay Area to market.
Peter Levitt, Co-owner of Saul’s Restaurant and Deli, backyard beekeeper.
Corey Block, Moderator, Urban Farm Coordinator at Treasure Island Job Corps
