“The population of bees in the world continues to decline,” says Debbie Fisher, Charleston Honey and Bee Expo organizer. So on Sunday, the Charleston Area Beekeepers Association hosts the Charleston Honey and Bee Expo to help educate the public about bees — and their importance to the environment — with honey tastings, an observation hive, and information about bees and beekeeping, as well as how to make mead. “We feel this is a way we can share information and promote healthy practices that benefit bees by showing people live bees and talking with them about the kinds of things that we do to help the bees in the hive, as well as around our yards and gardens,” Fisher adds. “And bring the kids since they’ll have a children’s corner with games and arts and crafts. Food vendors will be selling honey treats, including honey-flavored cotton candy, local honey baklava, and appetizers with local honey from Sermet’s Courtyard. The expo will also screen the documentary More Than Honey at 1:30 p.m. for $5.
