Rare Nectars Honey Tasting

September 28, 2012 @ 6:30 am - 7:30 am

Much of the honey that you buy in the store is made from the nectar that bees gather from clover or orange blossoms, but did you know that bees make radically different flavors of honey depending on what sort of flowers they have nearby their hive?

Join us as we conduct a honey tasting, trying less-common honeys such as Goldenrod and Buckwheat.  You’ll discover just how diverse honey can be, and in the process we’ll learn about the different plants that are the source of these unique flavors.

This is an adult-level workshop that can also be enjoyed by children.

Free with Day Pass Admission. Free for Bartram’s Garden Members.

On September 28, this program will take place at 11:30 am and again at 2 pm.
