Celebrate National Pollinator Week with Apoidea Apiary

  • Make + Matter 3711 Butler Street Pittsburgh, PA, 15201 United States (map)

Hyperlocal Honey Tasting + DIY Seed Bombs  

Sample and purchase Apoidea Apiary’s Good Food Award-winning honeys, all harvested within 10 miles of downtown Pittsburgh.  Many of the hives kept are within a mile of Make + Matter in the Millvale/ Etna area.  Apoidea’s beekeeper, Christina Joy Neumann, will be talking about the craft of honey making and also be demonstrating how to make native perennial "seed bombs".  These clay/ compost balls are filled with seeds that help provide diverse nutrition to bees and other wildlife in urban open spaces such as backyards, abandoned lots, utility right-of-ways and roadsides.
