This has been an excellent Spring for beekeeping in Chicago. So far we have seen record blooms of Black Locust, Honey Locust and Yellow Sweet Clover, all excellent honey plants. This makes it all the better to celebrate our extended Spring weather with the 2013 edition of Sweet Summer Solstice.
On June 21, bring some chairs, a potluck dish to share and join Chicago Honey Co-op and Slow Food Chicago at Christy Webber Landscapes for our annual Sweet Summer Solstice Potluck Supper. Sweet Summer Solstice Potluck is a community picnic at Rancho Verde, the LEED-certified headquarters of Christy Webber Landscapes.
In addition to tours of the Chicago Honey Co-op hives on the green roof, there will be a raffle with lots of great prizes, including many from our fellow vendors at Logan Square Farmers Market.
Slow Food Chicago will provide a main course and beverages, including wines generously donated by our friends at Candid Wines beer from Goose Island, and bread from Crumb, More details on those tasty treats to follow soon!
Music will be provided by classical guitarist Neal Dixon Smith.
