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.
