In this comprehensive immersion at Empress Green, join co-founder Asher on a journey that will take you through a rooftop beekeeping session and behind-the-scenes tour of Staten Island's own urban farm.
First, you will get suited up in protective gear and then head to the roof where you'll learn about the art of beekeeping and the various tools used. You will then get the chance to open up and inspect the hives. Explore the complex and beautiful makeup of our precious little friends in a brand new way. All the while on the rooftop, take in the spectacular views of Manhattan.
Afterward, head downstairs to the urban farm for an inside look at Empress Green. Meet the crew, observe the farming operation and of course sample the freshest produce right from the source. The experience will conclude with tasting of honey and other delicious creations from the bees you interacted with.
