Honey Infusion Workshop

Saturday, May 13, 2023

12:30–3 p.m. | Offsite

Location: New Roots Community Farm | 670 Grand Concourse, Bronx NY, 10451

As spring approaches and the bees gear up for another season of pollination and creating delicious honey, this workshop will focus on herbal infusions with raw honey. We will dive in on the benefits and medicinal properties of different herbal infusions and how they can be used as immunity boosters, for healing wounds, fighting off cold and flu symptoms, and combating infections and allergies, among many other benefits. We will be using locally sourced Bronx honey to create our own infusions to take home. The free workshop will be hosted by NYBG in partnership with New Roots Community Farm.

Support for the Humanities Institute is provided by the Mellon Foundation.


Registration for this event is now closed.
