Honeybees and Healthy Living: It's Not Just the Sweet Stuff

Whole Foods P Street Mezzanine Level, Free with Registration

 

While honey is great stuff, and there are amazing connections between honeybees' making of honey and the health of our own diets, it turns out that they (and other pollinators) are one of our powerful connections to the overall health of our greenspaces and our environment. Come learn a little about how honeybees work, about how they contribute to your diet, some cool and healthy culinary and medicinal uses of honey and hive products, and how urban beekeepers seek to support bees so they can support the environment shared by all the living things around us. 

 

The DC Beekeepers Alliance is a resource site and forum for the urban beekeepers of Washington, DC. Members are welcome to ask questions, contribute content, and participate in organizing activities. Find out more about their work at www.DCBeekeepers.org.
