Thank you to all who participated in our first-ever National Honey Bee Day Celebration!
Despite the occasional rain shower, the day was a great success in celebrating honey bees and raising awareness for the importance of conservation. Highlights of the day included:
- Guided tours of the Glen Leven Honey Bee Sanctuary
- Sampling of Glen Leven Farm raw honey and a seasonal brew by Jackalope Brewing Co.
- Tours of the vegetable garden managed by Double H Farms: The Hermitage Hotel’s Sustainable Farming Project
- Presentation by the Nashville Area Beekeepers Association
Mark your calendars for next year’s event on Saturday, August 19, 2017!
Visitor testimonial: “We loved it, the tour was amazing – our hearts were pounding. Everyone was available to guide us to where we needed to be, happy to see we were there. We will be back with others to experience something so amazing, bees and their environment.”
*Note: Glen Leven Farm Raw Honey will next be available for sale at our Harvest & Halloween Family Farm Day on October 29, 2016. Click here for more details.
