Sweet! High Line Honey Day today gives us a FREE chance to get up close and personal with honey bees, beehives and beekeepers, plus taste samplings of New York City’s first artisanal honey market. High Line has teamed with Brooklyn Grange to bring beekeepers from all five boroughs to the elevated park for honey tastings and activities for kids.
Taste your way through New York City’s first artisanal honey market from sustainable, hyper-local food producers. Sample honey-infused foods, meet the beekeepers and take home a jar of your favorite borough’s honey.
Get an up-close-and-personal look at the inside of a beehive through a glass-paned demonstration hive. Sharpen your eyes to spot the queen bee, or catch a glimpse of the nuanced “waggle dance” that bees use to communicate the location of nectar hot spots. Learn which High Line plants these pollinators love to snack on.
It’s 2 PM to 7 PM today at the 14th Street Passage. Direct link to Honey Day at the High Line event
