Urban Beekeeper 101 & Honey Tasting

Loading Experiences
  • This event has passed.

Did you know that beekeeping in NYC was illegal until 2010 since honeybees were considered just as dangerous as hyenas and poisonous snakes?

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive hands-on beekeeping tutorial with Wilk Apiary, which has been keeping Honeybees in Queens since 2012.

Our first look at the beekeeping process with Wilk Apiary will include:

  • The history and origins story behind Wilk Apiary, and how beekeeping in NYC has grown since it was legalized in 2010
  • A hands-on opportunity to suit up like a professional beekeeper and see honeybees and their hive up close
  • Tasting honey from the same apiary over two different harvests to see how the taste changes with each new season
  • A jar of fresh local honey to take home from the apiary
