Virginia Honey: A Sweet History

2 p.m. Sunday, April 16, 2023

Honeybees have been a part of Virginia's history since they arrived with the first European colonists. They were Jamestown's valuable addition and served as homefront heroes when world wars caused sugar shortages. In recent years, mead has seen a resurgence along with beekeeping. Join author Virginia Johnson to hunt escaped swarms flying wild in the forests, visit modern-day observation hives and follow the mead path across the Commonwealth for a taste of history. Other buzzing surprises await this fascinating lecture and perhaps a few samples. Ms. Johnson’s book will be available for purchase in the museum’s gift shop.

Location: Isle of Wight County Museum, 103 Main Street, Smithfield, VA, 23430
