urban beekeeping workshop singapore

Learn About Urban Beekeeping in Singapore at Citizen Farm!

Want to learn about urban beekeeping in Singapore?

Edible Garden City and Melbourne City Rooftop Honey are proud to present their first ever urban beekeeping workshop. I will also be doing a sharing on my experience as a hobbyist managing our local Asian honeybee, Apis Cerana.

Spend an afternoon with us to learn all about these gentle, hardworking insects that help pollinate our fruit trees (you can say their efforts literally bear fruit for us) and tirelessly collect nectar to make delicious, nutritious honey that’s as good as gold.

This beekeeping workshop covers the following: 
– The plight of honey bees around the world
– Why and how bees make honey
– The benefits of honey and how to use it
– Why urban beekeeping? Urban vs. Rural
– Beekeeping insights for Singapore
– What we can do to make our cities more bee friendly
– The art of tasting honey, with accompanying fine-dining canapes from Cordon Bleu-trained Chef Isaac Henry

Date: 1st September 2018, Saturday

Venue: Citizen Farm, 60 Jalan Penjara
