For treats, we'll have a honey tasting!

 Morgen, of Honey Underground,  will be conducting a honey tasting in the shop.  There will be fresh bread from Acme and goat cheese and wine to go with.

A bit about Morgen:

 I am a beekeeper living in Oakland, California. My relationship with our country's most prolific pollinators was conceived while farming in Portland, Oregon. As I entered into the community of young farmers and environmental activists I discovered the imperative role bees play in culture and agricultural practices. Realizing the bees are our allies and collaborators, I decided to study agriculture and apiculture simultaneously. In 2011, I moved to the Bay Area to study Landscape Architecture and continue colony care. I have recently started a local club for apiarists and those interested and am now selling honey under the name of Honey Underground.

Friday, April 6th, 6-9pm
