Liz Tilton, Ph.D., Owner, TwoHoneys Bee Co.
Hosted by Judi Cettel and Jim Raphael, Mt. Adams
Can beekeeping be a humble act? Maybe. Ask Liz Tilton. On a gray Cincinnati day in February 2010, the universe surprised her with an encounter resulting in ownership of some banged-up beekeeping equipment. That encounter changed her life forever, and she remains over-the-moon obsessed with honeybees. For this salon, Liz will don her beekeeping garb and describe how the decline in the honeybee population has echoes in the decline of butterflies, other beneficial insects, birds, and on up the food chain until it eventually taps each one of us on the shoulder. Do honeybees live through the winter? Find out what goes on in a honeybee hive during an Ohio winter. Knowing what’s happening in the hive can help us understand how our lives are intimately intertwined with the honeybees. Come hear the latest buzz! Liz is now the delighted owner of TwoHoneys Bee Co, a business that operates wherever the bees fl y near Cincinnati, Ohio. Learn more at CincinnatiBees.com.
Perched on the edge of downtown and at the foot of historic Mt. Adams, the contemporary condominium of Judi Cettel and Jim Raphael is the creation of award-winning architect John Senhauser. A glass jewel box, with spectacular views of the river and downtown, this home is the perfect place to lift and warm your spirits on a gloomy, wintery Sunday afternoon. Wine, beer, and soft drinks accompany a selection of hors d’oeuvres and sweets.
