Honey



Thank you all for attending the Honey event hosted by Earthbound and the Oratia Farmers Market. We had a glorious day at the market, followed by a talk about beekeeping, honey and pollination by Karlene of Earthbound. After an educational Q & A we all enjoyed a honey tasting, salads with different honeygar dressings, a picnic, and good conversation. 
Thank you also to all the SFW members and friends who made and brought food to share, to Aldo di Cesare for the salads, and to Hanna of Mámor for her lovely handmade chocolates.
