Texas Honey Queen, Shelby Kilpatrick, talks about honey bees, pollination, bee-keeping, and produst of the hive. She will be bringing and observation hive of live honey bees, a demonstration bee hive, the tools needed for a begining beekeeper (including a bee suit) as well as educational posters and sample pollen and beeswax.
After her lecture, particpants can taste honey from around the world to see the difference that the different plant nectars the bees collect have on the honey.
This is sure to be fun for all ages and a great way to learn about something as important to our food as the honey bee. (and get free honey!)
This event is free to attend however donations will be gratefully accepted.
