What You’ll Do
Bees have something of a mixed reputation, known in equal parts for their searing stingers and rich honey. But urban beekeeper Bob Redmond would like you to focus on the sweeter side of their nature in a 75-minute honey-tasting session held inside a present-day apothecary. During your stay, you will sample at least six types of honey harvested from Seattle neighborhoods and learn the history behind the sweet, sticky foodstuff.
History of Honey
Seventh-year urban beekeeper Bob Redmond shares how bees make honey, what makes honeys taste different from one another, and which foods pair best with it.
Guests will chew raw propolis—another product of bees—and see frames of honeycomb from the hive.
Sample Honey and Take It Home
After sampling at least six locally made honeys, guests will go home with a 5-ounce jar of it.
When Bob Redmond first learned about the demise of pollinators, he delved deep into researching bees and the environment. Since 2009, Bob has run the progressive beekeeping operation Urban Bee Company, in addition to founding the arts and agriculture project, The Common Acre. Bob’s created the Flight Path pollinator project at Sea–Tac Airport, has presented his work on bees at national conferences, and serves as the Board President of Certified Naturally Grown, an organization that promotes sustainable farming.
