National Honey Bee Day!

August 12, 2017

OCBA kicked off National Honey Bee Week at the Chapel Hill Farmers Market. Vendors were asked to help promote the role of honey bees and other pollinators by displaying signs highlighting the role of bees in the production of their produce.

Chris Apple helped the non-beekeeping public appreciate the role of honey bees in the pollination of the world’s food supply. She staffed an information table about bees, beekeeping and honey production. Gifts of lip balm donated by Burt’s Bees and wild flower seed packets donated by BayerCropScience were available to market patrons who stopped by the info table.

Next Saturday on National Honey Bee Day, OCBA beekeepers will repeat this community education and outreach effort at the Eno River Farmers’ Market in Hillsborough.
