Head to Bartram's Garden this Sunday, September 8, from 10 am to 4 pm, for one of the sweetest events in Philly — the 4th annual Philadelphia Honey Festival! The Honey Festival is the perfect way to ease into fall and celebrate our seventh principle's focus on sustainability and interconnectedness.
The Honey Festival features a swarm of great activities: open hive talks with local beekeepers, the children's Be-A-Bee Parade and science station, honey tastings, beer brewing demos, film screenings, Schuylkill River cruises, gourmet food trucks, and more!
Plus, pick up some beautiful native plants during the fall plant sale to help attract pollinators to your home garden and chat with our horticultural experts for garden planning advice and tips.
The mission of the Philadelphia Honey Festival is to raise awareness about the importance of honey bees to our environment, our food supply and our economy, and to promote urban beekeeping and gardening.
Core collaborators include the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild, Bartram's Garden, Wyck Historic House, Garden, and Farm, and the Wagner Free Institute of Science.
Bartram's Garden is located at 54th Street and Lindbergh Boulevard and is accessible by the #36 trolley, just 15 minutes from Center City. On-site parking is free. For more info, visit: www.bartramsgarden.org and www.phillyhoneyfest.com.
