Sponsor a Green-Wood Beehive for 2020
Help protect the honey bee population by sponsoring a Green-Wood beehive! Your donation helps us to support healthy bee colonies, which cross-pollinate Green-Wood's 478 acres and help keep Brooklyn's natural environment healthy and diverse.
Your donation goes towards hive equipment, supplies, and, most importantly, the time and expertise of our beekeepers.
As a Green-Wood beehive sponsor, you receive:
- A certificate of sponsorship, signed by Green-Wood President Richard J. Moylan.
- Invitation to the sponsors-only Honey Harvest in late summer 2020. With Green-Wood’s beekeepers and your fellow sponsors, you will help extract honey from honeycomb and learn about the inner-workings of our beehives.
- Jars of The Sweet Hereafter: Honey from Green-Wood. After the 2020 Honey Harvest, full-hive sponsors will receive ten 3 oz. jars, and half-hive sponsors will receive five 3 oz. jars.
- The amazing feeling of knowing that you are helping to boost the population of one our most important pollinators, the honeybee!
