2017 National Honey Bee Day

National Honey Bee Day is August 19, 2017.

No Bees . . .

Orange County Beekeepers Association (OCBA) is partnering with the Eno River Farmers’ Market, the Carrboro Farmers’ Market and the Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market to staff honey bee education and information tables at each county market. The OCBA information tables will include observation hives with live honey bees, information about OCBA’s annual Bee School to train new beekeepers, and educational displays and information about honey bees and honey. Market vendors who sell honey will offer honey samples to market consumers. Market produce vendors will display yellow “Caution” signs with their fruits and vegetables to highlight the importance of bees to the pollination of food crops.
