Parq Vancouver’s Honey Salt unveils new Immersive Beekeeping Experience
Just in time for World Bee Day, Parq Vancouverâ€™s Honey Salt announces partnership with Hives for Humanity, a Vancouver non-profit organization that inspires people and communities to make social impact through beekeeping.
Together, Parq Vancouver, Honey Salt and Hives for Humanity have launched a beekeeping workshop set to take place on Saturday, May 25 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The $88.00 ticket price includes a two-part experience, beginning with a Hives for Humanity honey-infused three-course lunch set around a harvest-style table at Honey Salt. Guests will taste their way through a family style menu, specially curated by Parq Vancouver’s Culinary Director, Jason Labahn; and then explore to a nearby community garden for an immersive beekeeping experience. A portion of workshop ticket proceeds will provide meaningful work to residents of the Downtown Eastside. Limited tickets are available.
Upon arrival at the garden, attendees will suite up in a fully protective bee veil and begin their educational journey. An interactive discussion with Hives for Humanityâ€™s Beekeeper, Sarah Common will take place while guests tour the hives and participate in a raw, local honey tasting.
â€œHives for Humanity was one of the first local producers that we connected with in the opening of Honey Salt,â€ said Jason Labahn, Culinary Director at Parq Vancouver’s Honey Salt. â€œIt is so exciting to see this workshop come to life now that bee season has arrived! Honey Salt gets a lot of inspiration from passionate people in our community and we jump at any chance to work together and share our passions and stories through our food.â€
