Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) is approaching so staff at Ekar have collaborated with Mizel Museum and Hazon Colorado to provide a series of programs to
celebrate and educate the community about the importance of bees, beekeeping and the pleasures of honey.
Adults are invited to Salon Night: Bees & Honey 101, Thursday, September 6, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Mizel Museum, 400 S. Kearney St., Denver, for presentations by Coloradoan and former Israeli beekeeper Norm Klapper about the art and science of beekeeping, and Hazon Colorado on
the nutritional, environmental and purely pleasurable benefits of honey and the bees that make it. The evening will conclude with a honey tasting, courtesy of Ekar’s own bees.
Bee-lovers can attend two special events on Sunday, September 9. From 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Ekar Farm, 6825 E. Alameda Ave., Denver, will offer a beehive building workshop when families will be shown how to build a beehive for their own backyards or for Ekar to place in future gardens. Price is $36 for a take-home hive.
Orders should be placed with Aaron Ney - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also on Sept 9th, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., the Mizel Museum will screen “The Bee Movie,” a buzz-worthy comedy that will change everything you think you know about bees, starring Jerry Seinfeld. Honey-related snacks and refreshments will be served. Price is $6/person; children under 12 free.
On Thursday, September 20, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Ekar will present “L’Daber al D’vash: A Talk on Honey", with a panel of local rabbis entertaining and engaging the audience in a discussion about the role of honey and bees in the Jewish New Year tradition. Apples and honey will be served.
