FRIDAY AUGUST 7

HONEYBEE HIGHLIGHT WITH CLIFF SUNFLOWER 10:00AM to 3:30PM
The obvious benefit to beekeeping is the honey, a readily available sweetener in a time when white sugar was imported and expensive. Don’t forget though the essential role that bees play in the pollination of fruits and vegetables. An additional benefit is the beeswax which is important in the making of sweet-smelling candles and other decorative items. Cliff Sunflower has a unique and highly entertaining presentation on bee keeping, honey and the life cycle of the honeybee. Adults will be amused and amazed, but children especially enjoy his interactive presentations.
