To mark National Honey Bee Day, two local farmers markets will host special events on Saturday to celebrate the importance of the bee.
I'm sure there might be other markets out there that might have honey-related fun planned. If so, please share the details in the comments.
Here's what I know about:
The morning also includes live music, yoga and other activities.
“Bees may be small in size, but their impact on agriculture is enormous,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler in a press release. “Many of North Carolina’s crops rely heavily on the state’s nearly 25,000 honey bee colonies.”
The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ apiary staff will be there with its bee cage, a popular demonstration that allows a beekeeper to interact with bees, the release said. Bailey Bee Supply of Raleigh will provide an observation hive so visitors can look inside a working hive.
The day also includes presentations and honey samples.
