A Taste of Honey(bees): An Introduction to Bees & Beekeeping with Smart Farm of Barrington

Many people know that honeybees are in trouble but do you know why? Would you like to find out? Would you like to learn what you can do to help the decline? Have you ever thought of keeping bees and harvesting the honey yourself?

Find out all this and more from local beekeeper, Tom Rowan at this beginning beekeeping seminar hosted by Smart Farm of Barrington. It’s happening from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, April 4th. You’ll learn what to do and what not to do in order to help bees survive. What agricultural and habitat practices are adversely affecting honeybees today.

You can even learn the basics of backyard beekeeping to maybe start your own apiary right out your back door. This entertaining and informative forum will show you all the basics.

A Taste of Honey(bees) will take place at The Smart Farm Learning Center, 490 W IL 22 in Lake Barrington. (Please note GPS directions are incorrect.) Smart Farm is located west of Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital and east of Kelsey Rd on the North Side of Rte 22.

The fee to register is $25 with additional family members at $10/each. Class size is limited. Click here to register today!


Founded in 2008, Smart Farm is a volunteer-run, non-profit with a two-fold mission: to grow fresh produce for our neighbors in need and be an educational resource for local residents on sustainable gardening practices, healthy eating and local food waste distribution. Though their work focuses on a small geographic area, Smart Farm’s cause is universal & essential: bright food for a healthy, sharing community. SmartFarms.org
