Beekeeping: The Foxfire Way & Now

Beekeeping: The Foxfire Way & Now

Join us September 17th, 1:00pm, at the Cedarock Park Historical Farm for a presentation by NC-certified beekeepers Ira Poston of Blueberry Hill Apiaries and Paul Jollay of the Glencoe Honey Company. Ira and Paul join us again this year to present a workshop on beekeeping practices, past and present. They will have honey to sample, honey for sale, a demonstration hive, take-home seeds to grow your own bee-friendly flowers, and copies of their favorite reference materials for participants to look through. Ira and Paul are members of the Alamance County Beekeepers, a chapter of the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association.  Ira & Paul’s presentation was a favorite last year- don’t miss it!

The Foxfire in Cedarock Park program is a series of workshops celebrating Appalachian culture and tradition. So far this year we’ve enjoyed programs about canning and woodturning, as well as the annual Preserving Our Heritage Festival. The next and final program after Beekeeping will be the Fall Festival in October which features old-time farm games followed by Ghosts in the Park storytelling in the evening. This year we’re adding professional face painting and a daytime storytelling station to the Fall Festival. More details will be announced soon.

All programs are free and open to the public. The Foxfire in Cedarock Park series is co-sponsored by Alamance Parks and Alamance County Public Libraries.
