    Kids and parents alike met under our gazebo and participated in creating bee crafts creatively  hosted by the My Creative Outlet . Eating snow cones and listening to Bethany (pictured below) read her book Give Bees A Chance, was the perfect diversion from the sweltering heat of the day.

    Judging from the ever-present crowd,  people seemed interested to learn more about the ancient craft of mead making.  Look for upcoming mead making workshops with Roger at The Valley Hive in the near future.mead tasting 8-17

    Doug, LACBA member, and owner of Outback Catering, served burgers to hundreds of hungry guests! His food was scrumptious by the way!

     

     

    More than twenty beekeepers entered our 2nd Annual Honey Contest to commemorate National Honeybee Day.  All proceeds from the event will be used to help save the buzz and educate people about the importance of honeybees. Below, 1st place winner Willem Rietveld shows off his awards! Also pictured, the winning honey chiffon cake, baked by Laura Finkelstein. The honeycomb crumble on top gave it that extra pop! Can't wait to see what you all come up with for next year!!

The extra honey will be raffled off and the proceeds will go to a bee charity chosen by The Valley Hive.
