Rockaway Honeyworks/Beekeeping

There's a new honey in town, creating opportunities for local youth and community members to take part in this new beekeeping venture.

Students in the Shore Corps internship are learning beekeeping at our new apiary at the RISE Center. The bees have been busy pollinating plants along the eleven miles of coastal shoreline. We recently harvested honey from the hives to sell through our new business venture, Rockaway Honeyworks.

Purchase our honey to show your support. All sales go to support RISE's youth programs. Rockaway Honeyworks products and swag can be purchased at Rockaway Market Street @ Beach 60th every Saturday under the elevated A-train tracks at Beach 60th Street or directly on our website shop page.

Check out our photos and regular updates on the beekeeping RISE has been doing under the direction of Master Beekeeper Carl Flatow. Special thanks to Bee Smart Designs for donating their beekeeping products.
