For your “honey do” list: Attend annual honey tasting
[09.19.2011]

TAMPA, Fla. -- One of the sweetest events of the year is just around the corner. The University of South Florida Botanical Gardens is getting ready for the second Annual Honey Tasting Event from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24 at the gardens.

The USF Botanical Gardens will give participants the opportunity to taste unusual and exotic honey from around the world, as well as honey produced by USF bees. The event also will include live music, food, activities for children, and a local beer-brewing club will come by with samples.

Tickets are $20 and available by calling (813) 974-2329 or by stopping by the garden’s office located at 12210 USF Pine Dr.

The funds raised by the event will go toward supporting the Botanical Garden’s beekeeper, buying new supplies, and offering more beekeeping courses. It also will allow the Botanical Gardens to have more guest speakers and educational experiences for visitors.

Laurie Walker, director of the USF Botanical Gardens, hopes to have another successful event. “Last year we really didn’t know what to expect and were thrilled with over 100 people,” she said. “This year, I hope we have even more.”
