World Honeybee Day Aug. 17

Event

Mooney’s Market is partnering with Mary Priestley to celebrate World Honeybee Day on Saturday, Aug. 17. 

Priestley has donated 100 copies of her book “William’s Wildflowers” to commemorate this special day and to honor the essential honeybee. The book’s narrator is Bea, a honeybee, and features the beautiful botanical illustrations of William Crutchfield as a way to introduce children to our native wildflowers and the importance of bees.

Mooney’s will be giving away copies of “William’s Wildflowers” to the first 100 customers on World Honeybee Day. There will also be a donation jar for contributions to The Honeybee Conservancy. Check out their work at <https://thehoneybeeconservancy.org>.

Drop into Mooney’s from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, Aug.17, and pick up your free signed copy of  “William’s Wildflowers.”

Mooney’s Market is located at 1265 W. Main St., Monteagle (just across from the Sand Plant).
