Description:
Virginia Cooperative Extension presents a Virginia Virtual Farm to Table Program titled "Honey" on Friday, May 29, 2020.

What is the Buzz About Bees? Join us as we explore the world of bees and learn more about the buzz that they create in our world! You will learn about the importance of bees as pollinators; how bees are an important to Virginia’s Agriculture; where to purchase honey, the health benefits of honey; and how your family can get involved in beekeeping in your own backyard.

We will hear from Jeff Brown, a beekeeper from Franklin County, VA who will demonstrate tools and techniques for successfully starting and maintaining bee hives. We will also spotlight Campbell County 4-H members who are enrolled in a beekeeping project. Becky Gartner, an Extension agent and beekeeper from Culpeper, VA; will provide some expertise on best management practices for beekeeping and also highlight how the beekeeping industry supports agriculture in Virginia. Then, Alani Adkins, Family and Consumer Sciences SNAP-Ed Extension Agent in Danville, VA will share a recipe and demonstrate how to make delicious honey pumpkin bars for your family.

Virginia agriculture is incredibly diverse, and despite our current challenges, farmers all across the commonwealth are busy keeping food on their customers' tables. In this program, we will take a virtual tour of ­­­­Virginia farms and learn how food is produced on them. Then we will learn how to prepare new recipes with those foods.

All sessions will be offered on Fridays at 2:00 pm, are 40 minutes long, and are open to everyone.
