Tours of Local Apiaries


  • various locations in Brooklyn & Queens

Local beekeepers invite wanna-bees into backyards, onto roofs, and to community gardens to visit live beehives and learn more about the wondrous world of honeybees. Logistics and the degree of interactivity of these apiary tours varies from location to location, so contact individual hosts directly via email for further information. Attendance will be limited, so first-come, first-served.
