The Products of the Hive:
This hands-on class will be delicious, educational, and fun!
The two-hour workshop will introduce participants to the main products of the honeybee hive: honey, wax, and propolis. Participants will learn some amazing facts about each of these products including how and why they are produced by the bees and their medicinal properties. Participants will also review some simple recipes and how-to instruction for creating (and labeling) herb infused honey, candles, and lip balm. Finally everyone will taste some infused honey and create lip balm from an easy-to-follow recipe each participant will go home with their own tube.
Instructor: Stephanie Elson is passionate about bees and the products of the hive. In her urban apiary in Jamaica Plain, she harvests honey, collects wax, and observes, learns, and teaches about bees and bee behavior. With her husband, Emile, Stephanie runs The Benevolent Bee and sells handcrafted bee products including candles, balms, and salves. When not playing with the bees, Stephanie works for Mass Audubon where she runs the Shaping the Future of Your Community program, helping Massachusetts townships with smart growth and sustainable development.
