Bees, Plants, and Honey: Pollination Ecology

Instructor: Richard Carroll, Ph.D.

Saturday, March 14 | 12-4 p.m.

Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Friends: $40 | Non-members: $50

For thousands of years, honey has been an important and delicious food source for humans across the globe. In recent years, honey has gained a sophistication and appreciation which rivals that of wine. The number of honey varieties available from local beekeepers, health food stores, and online has grown appreciably. Honey, a complex product of botanical and entomological processes, has, in some respects, remained unexplainable. This class will explore topics like plant pollination throughout history and pollination strategies used by both pollinators and plants. Attendees will examine several different honeys, and identify them by their pollen assemblages. Additionally, come prepared to taste these varieties and discuss their associated color, taste, aromas, and other characteristics.



Refunds (minus a $15 processing fee) will be given for Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens programs priced at $25 or more if notification is made at least 10 business days prior to class start date. (You are always welcome to send another person under your registration if you cannot attend.) Transfers may be made to programs of equal value at no additional fee. We reserve the right to cancel classes due to lack of participation or other unforeseen circumstances. Please note that programs are held rain or shine; in extreme weather conditions, programs may be canceled for your safety and the safety of staff and volunteers. If we cancel a program for any of these reasons, we will issue a full refund.
