Honey Harvest at Cranaleith: Gathering the Honey (onsite)
July 15, 2022
Any visitor to Cranaleith can’t help but notice the brightly colored beehives near the upper orchard on the front lawn. They are part of Cranaleith’s commitment to care for Creation. Since human impact has dramatically reduced the bee population, “keeping” bees assists them in pollinating food and habitats that support all life on the planet.
If you are interested in learning more about bees and would like to participate in Cranaleith’s early harvest, join us! Learn about bees from our beekeeper, Gene. Help Kathie empty the combs of honey. Reflect with Bernadette on the life of bees and the wisdom they have for your life.
Open to novices, old-hands and everyone in between. Be prepared to get sticky; and wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty. Bring a bib apron if you have one. Honey is washable, so all will be well after laundry and soap!
Although we will do our best to minimize your contact with the bees, do not register if you are allergic to bees. Each registrant must electronically consent to Cranaleith’s Agreement of Indemnity.
Registration is limited to ten people. Rain Date: July 22.
