The First Honey Harvest - Mass Hort Society - Class

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Spring's flowers produce a unique, light honey in New England, yet we are only just beginning to learn which flowers are the true sources for this liquid gold. Engage with harvesting tools and techniques to collect honey and beeswax together with The Best Bees Company team of bee experts, led by Noah Wilson-Rich, Ph.D.

Noah Wilson-Rich, Ph.D. is a biologist, professor, NYTimes & LATimes contributor, two-time TEDx speaker, beekeeper, and author of The Bee: A Natural History published by Princeton University Press.

Noah's research focuses on bee immunology. Noah is the Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of The Best Bees Company, a beekeeping service that delivers, installs, and manages beehives for residential and commercial properties nation-wide. Proceeds from The Best Bees Company go toward research to improve bee health. This research is based out of the Urban Beekeeping Laboratory and Bee Sanctuary, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Boston's South End. More information at and
