Catch the Buzz

For you local folks looking for something to do tonight, I invite you to come check out a panel discussion on “Women & Bees” that I’ll be included in.


Part of Asheville International Pollinator Week, the discussion follows Tammy Horn’s talk on how the honeybee has been perceived in this country and how those perceptions have changed as the country has developed through the centuries. She’ll also be discussing her upcoming book on women and bees. Horn is a professor at Berea College in Kentucky and the author of Bees In America-How the Honeybee Shaped A Nation and Beecomony: What Women and Bees Can Teach Us About Local Trade and the Global Market.

The event will be held at Altamont Theatre Company located at 11 Church St. It runs from 7-9 and costs $11. Here’s a link to the event. Hope to perhaps see some of you there!

    Oh how I wish that I didn't live on the OTHER side of the state! I am a female beekeeper– of color, noless- and I would love to meet other female beekeepers. I hope that the talk was informative. I look forward to reading Ms. Horn's work. It sounds interesting.
