Where: The School of the Arts farm, 555 Portola Drive

What: A guided tasting of local neighborhood San Francisco honeys.
Apiarist Robert MacKimmie will guide through the tasting of several
micro-climate honeys from right here in SF! Taste honeys from:
Cole Valley, Potrero Hill, Pacific Heights, Mission, MacLaren Park, Cow
Hollow, the St-Andreas faultline & (the farthest out) Healdsburg’s Dry
Creek forest. Learn about urban bee keeping and what gives honeys their
distinct taste. You’ll be surprised by the difference just a few blocks
can make in taste and color.
