Beekeeper Mary Woltz Will Do a Bee Presentation at Sag Harbor Farmers Market Tomorrow

Friend of Edible, beekeeper Mary Woltz, will be at the Sag Harbor Farmers Market tomorrow. If you want an intro to apiary from someone as sweet as honey, this is the thing for you.
Bees and Their Needs: On June 8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Mary Woltz, beekeeper and owner of Bees’ Needs, will make the first of three presentations about the honey bee. She will be talking about the basic biology of the honey bee and what’s really going on in all those boxes, why this small insect is so vitally important, and why we all have a stake in her well-being.

Subsequent talks will cover the products of the hive: honey, pollen, wax and propolis, and thirdly, honey bee health and some of the challenges facing the bees, namely, diseases (varroa mites and colony collapse disorder), pesticides and loss of habitat.
