Members please RSVP on right.

Nonmembers, to RSVP please click here

We'll be welcoming Hannah Nordhaus, author of The Beekeeper’s Lament: How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America, published by Harper Perennial in May 2011. The book is a non-fiction portrait of an unusual fourth-generation beekeeper who travels the West with 10,000 beehives, making honey, pollinating crops, and struggling to keep his bees alive in the middle of a strange and sobering honey bee die-off.

A historian by training, Hannah is an award-winning journalist based in Boulder Colorado.

Hannah's book will be available for purchase & signing.

We're planning lovely seasonal refreshments again this time. We'll have many honeys to taste from member & community hives citywide, and a few gifted to us from sister cities. Beekeepers who want to swap honey, please bring some along!

We're asking each guest to donate $10 this time to defray the cost of refreshments.

To make an additional, tax-deductible charitable donation in support of NYC Beekeeping programs please go to www.honeybeeconservancy

    Great to hear the author's perspectives after reading the book. Both of which were very interesting.

    Hannah is an able and engaging speaker and I enjoyed her presentation. I bought her book, and she autographed it. As for the honey tasting, I thought it would have gone better if toothpicks were used and people got to taste more varieties of honey.
