I like to share the “buzz” about some of my favorite events during the year. Last month, TD Bank demonstrated their continued commitment to the environment by hosting The High Line Honey Harvest Festival, a fun day of activities, learning, and delicious tastings. Attendees had the opportunity to see walls of indigenous flowers, active beehives and presentations by local experts.
This free, year-long initiative highlights the vital role that bees play in sustaining the planet’s food supply and ecosystems. Bees are critical pollinators, pollinating a large number of the crop species that feed people globally.
An incredible 100 to 150 pounds of honey from rooftop beehives in the Chelsea neighborhood was on-sale at the High Line Honey Harvest Event. 100% of the proceeds from the honey sales benefit the horticulture and sustainable maintenance of this beautiful park that draws millions of visitors every year. Chelsea is one of the most interesting New York neighborhoods, and it’s great that the High Line remains a free public space. Thank you to TD Bank and all supporters of our environment, the High Line and, of course, the bees.
