Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

While honey may be the sweetest reason for beekeeping, there are many other ways it can be a beneficial hobby. The Bay Village branch library is pleased to host a three-part series presented by Amalia Haas, beekeeper and environmental educator. Learn about honey from flower to bee, crystallization, fermentation, and how terroir affects a honey’s sensory qualities. Changing landscapes, modern agriculture, climate change and globalization all play a role in pollinator decline. Learn steps we can all take to ensure our food security and help bees thrive in today’s challenging environment. Please see below for information on the weekly topics and dates.
