Learn about the marvel of honey at Lanier Library
Published 10:48 am Thursday, September 8, 2022
At the next Live@Lanier, which will be on Thursday, September 22, 5:30 p.m., take the marvelous journey of honey with beekeeper Lisa Krolak. First, a honeybee starts by filling both of its bellies with nectar from a random selection of flowers. The next stop is a hive and comb, and from there, with the care of a beekeeper, into a cup of tea or a glaze on a ham.
Honey has also been used in medicine worldwide for centuries. Ayurvedic practitioners, for example, treated wounds with honey. Some of us may remember a honey concoction
soothing a cough as a child.
About six years ago, Lisa Krolak took the Polk County beekeeping extension course and now she and a friend keep 12-16 hives. She will share what she has learned at this Felburn Nature and Wildlife Collection Program.
Landrum Library is located at 72 Chestnut Street in Tryon. For more information call 828-859-9535, or visit www.thelanierlibrary.org.
