Qué harás

Make your way to the Governors Island Ferry Terminal, also known as the Battery Maritime Building, located on 10 South Street and take the ferry to Governors Island. We will meet on Governors Island's as you exit towards the Soissons Ferry Landing. Enjoy the panorama of downtown Manhattan and the famous surrounding landmarks! From here, we will lead you towards the Urban Farm while walking past historical points such as Fort Jay, originally built to defend New York City during the American Revolution and through Nolan Park, a remnant of the 19th century, lined by charming yellow houses that were once home to military officers. On our way to the Urban Farm Bee Sanctuary, we will also observe the pollinators buzzing around the native flowers that are in full bloom this season. Upon arrival to the Urban Farm Bee Sanctuary, we will begin with a 40 minute overview of what makes up a honeybee colony and proper hive inspection etiquette prior to our honeybee demonstration where you will see first hand the inner workings of a honeybee colony. We will then close our lesson with a tasting of Governors Island wildflower honey while learning more about the research being done at the sanctuary and how you can help! We hope you can take this unique experience home and feel inspired to create a sanctuary of your own.

Hello!

We’re Carolina Zuniga-Aisa and Stacey Vazquez. We met during our Brooklyn Grange beekeeping apprenticeship program in 2015 and have been keeping honeybees on Governors Island ever since. As two native New Yorkers working in fashion design and hospitality, we feel that beekeeping is at the center of both major industries. For nearly 5 years, we have been sharing our passion and enthusiasm for honeybees with urban farm visitors, friends, and families. We continue to inspire visitors and advocate for native and honeybees at our Bee Sanctuary in partnership with The Honeybee Conservancy, a charity that creates bee sanctuaries around the U.S. to foster local food and honeybee education. We believe that in giving bees a chance gives us all a chance. Join us as we explore inside the hives of these fascinating and vital creatures!

This is one of the highlights of my trip in NYC! Carolina and Stacy (and Brenda) were very sweet and friendly. The meeting point was easy to get to. They waited for everybody to show up and we walked together to the bee hives (about 15 mins walk). They were very knowledgeable about the bees and they explained to you in a very understandable way even if you had no idea about bees before. You will know what you need to know about bees, their life cycle, their behaviors, and so on. Carolina and Stacy looked very passionate about what they were doing and really put lots of effort in it. You will also get to interact directly with the bees. They provided the suit and the gloves. At the end of it you will also taste different kind of honey and will know more about honey pairing. It was an amazing experience and rarely found. I definitely recommend this experience!

These lady’s have a very sweet special spot on Governor’s Island and I’ve never felt so comfortable around so many bees! They are super knowledgeable and approachable and I learned a lot about bees. Definitely budget extra time to walk around the island if you’ve never been as well.

This was the highlight out of all the excursions I've done with Airbnb. The most unique and difficult to find experience I have ever done. It was totally safe, easy to connect, personalized and unique. It fertilized my interest in the earth and gave me insight that has been enlightening. Great job ladies!
