“Hello Beekeepers, Wanna-bees and Honey Lovers!
This months meeting of the Backwards Beekeepers of NYC will take place at 61 Local in Brooklyn. Only this time, we’ll be letting our veils down and having a good old time celebrating the past season of beekeeping! Beekeepers, bring some honey to share as we will have some wonderful locally made cheeses to pair with your liquid gold as well as some suggested brews to wash it all down. Non-beekeeping folk, bring all of your questions and interest as well as an apetite for some sweet stuff! We’ll have honey from all over the city and some from other parts of the world!
Come on by, taste some honey, chat with some beekeepers and maybe make some new friends. Beekeepers, unlike their insect counterparts, do not sting!
61 Local is located at 61 Bergen St in lovely Cobble Hill, off of the Bergen F/G trains
The NYC Backwards Beekeeping Gang!
P.S. Check out BBNYC member Kelly York’s husband Zane’s exhibit Stewards at Causey Contemporary in Brooklyn from December 16th-Jan 24th. He’ll be showing an amazing painting of Kelly with her bees!”
