Saving the Bees: The Sweet Life of a Beekeeping Entrepreneur, a CT Horticultural Society event

November 21, 2019 • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

C. Marina Marchese is changing the way people taste and think about honey. This designer-turned beekeeper is the visionary behind the iconic brand Red Bee Honey. During a former career as an international designer, Marina unexpectedly visited a neighbor’s apiary where her first taste of fresh honey from the beehive would change the course of her life. She quit her job, built a beehive and acquired some Italian honeybees to become a beekeeper.

A fervent and dynamic sought-after speaker, Marina shares her knowledge in her animated and inspiring presentation – Saving the Bees: The Sweet Life of a Beekeeping Entrepreneur. She will leave you with a fascinating view of the importance of honey bees to our food chain and the gastronomic delight of varietal honeys. Marina will have her books and some of her Red Bee products on hand for sale at the meeting.

Members, free; guests, $10
