Honey Harvesting with Queen and Colony

Saturday May 18th // 12-2p

Join Josh Harris, owner of Queen & Colony Bee Co (formerly Harris Honey) as he dives into backyard beekeeping 101! Attendees will learn the ins and outs of backyard beekeeping. With an observation colony, attendees will have hands on training on how to harvest honey. Everyone will walk away with lots of beekeeping and honey harvesting knowledge and a jar of honey that they harvested.

Beekeeping began as a backyard hobby for Josh and Rebekah Harris with one colony of bees in St. Petersburg, Florida. This backyard hobby soon turned into a passion and the number of bee colonies began to multiply. Not only were they keeping bees in their own backyard, but also expanding into the backyards of friends and relatives throughout the city. In 2015 they started a sideline business called Harris Honey. With so many open doors of opportunity for urban beekeeping in the Tampa Bay area, Josh and Rebekah decided to take the plunge into full time urban beekeeping. In 2018 Queen & Colony Bee Company was launched. By keeping bees in backyards and business properties right in the city, Queen & Colony is able to provide the highest quality of truly local raw honey and hive products to all of the Tampa Bay Area. Queen & Colony also specializes in live bee removal services and beekeeping education opportunities. Queen & Colony aims to be Tampa Bay’s source for all things bee related.

The class is held at The Urban Canning Kitchen and taught by Queen & Colony founder, Josh Harris. Address is 1040 4 St. N in St. Pete!
