Honey: Products from Our Garden!

Sustainable Garden honey

In 2011 Farmingdale Horticulture student Joan Mahoney became our Sustainable Garden beekeeper, donating two hives to boot! 

With her nurturing care and expertise she extracted nearly 100 pounds of honey in 2012. With the help of the FSC Visual Communications Department, who designed a nifty logo, honey was loaded into jars and sold, and we launched our first product from the garden. Come to our Educational Field Day on April 13, 2013 and see how you can pre-order honey from this year’s garden, as well as learn all about other garden products we will be offering this year!
