The bees are still buzzing about their presentation this past August! We are offering this wonderful program again on November 11th from 2 – 3:30 pm at Homecoming Farm, Albany Avenue, Amityville, NY 11701.
Homecoming Farm is home to a honeybee apiary where we have 11 hives. While most people know that honeybees pollinate crops and produce honey…they do not know that bees and/or honey appear in almost every religious text. Together we will explore what it is about the bee that engages mystics, saints, farmers and honey-lovers!
Presented by Elizabeth M. Keihm, Executive Director of Homecoming Farm, a Sponsored Ministry of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville. Homecoming Farm is a Community Supported Agricultural project that grows certified organic produce for its members as well as donating food to soup kitchens and those in need.
In the event of inclement weather, we will move indoors.
