Last Saturday I attended the Kinfolk Honey Harvest Workshop, hosted by the lovely Jaclyn of Little Paper Trees and Blog Society together with Cake Wines. How
cool lucky am I? My gorgeous sunshine friend Emma scored us tickets to this event (thanks, Em!), and on Saturday we met down a Fitzroy alley at 1pm (how Melbourne), ready for honey class.
It was a small gathering, about 25 honey folk. We sat at tables adorned with flowers, sipping beautiful Shiraz and eating divine cheese with bread, Dr Marty’s Crumpets and honey as we listened to Andrew and Joanna from Maya Sunny Honey speak of their unique product and the journey of their honey from Poland to Australia. We also heard from Vanessa and Matt of Melbourne City Rooftop Honey, who gave a great rundown on what we need to know to start bee keeping ourselves (my Dad is already ahead of me, having interned himself and planning his own swarm).
I left feeling so sincerely energised by these talks. Naturally I was sky high on golden, crumpet-kissed honey goodness, I mean that was part of the deal… but I was also buzzed by the possibility of harvesting my own and fostering the sweet cycle of nature, production, consumption…Doean’t that sound so romantic? Yes, I’m keen to get my hands stuck in a honey pot of my own.
