Poetry and beekeeping finally come together in this wonderful event that will see creative beekeeping practice Honey Fingers debut his poetry anthology—titled Sparrows in the Supermarket—with selected readings and a honey-themed grazing table.
Honey Fingers is more than an urban beekeeping network—beekeeping is a wonderful and often mindful look into the natural world that exists in our urban environment. Beekeeping cultivates quiet observations of biological systems, the human community that lives in urban spaces, the technologies we use to share these observations, and the feelings that get caught up in all of this. In keeping with MPavilion’s theme for March—Knowledge: Shared Learning, Shared Power—the launch of Sparrows in the Supermarket welcomes into the world a collection of the lessons learned and little mantras assembled, in poetry, along the way. The grazing table will feature a honeycomb centrepiece with selected local produce for attendees to share and experience.
