The Marvelous journey of honey
September 22 @ 5:30 pm
The marvelous journey of honey starts with a honeybee filling both of its bellies with nectar from a random selection of flowers. Next stop is a hive and comb, and from there, with the care of a beekeeper, into a cup of tea or a glaze on a ham.
Honey has also been used in medicine worldwide for centuries. Ayurvedic practitioners, for example, treated wounds with honey. And, some of us may remember a honey concoction
soothing a cough as a child.
About six years ago, Lisa Krolak took the Polk Count beekeeping extension course and now she and a friend keep 12-16 hives. She will share what she has learned at this Felburn Nature and Wildlife Collection Program on Thursday, September 22, 5:30 PM.
