Honey Fundraising

Want some local honey?

I'm here, in my garden with the gate open, every Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:00 selling honey and more!  My daughter, Lena, and I have made candles, lotion and lip-balm from the beeswax I've collected.  I'll be here each Wednesday as long as I have honey to sell.  Currently I have about 30 lbs and about 60 lbs waiting to be harvested in my two hives.  You don't need to buy any honey, just come by to check out the hives!  If Wednesday afternoon is not a good time for you, I'm sure we can find a time that works for both of us.  

I've decided to do three fundraisers as part of my honey selling. On these fundraising days all sales will be donated to three different organizations that mean a lot to me and my family.

James Denman PTSA, August 20 - This is Lena's middle school and where many of the kids in the neighborhood will attend middle school as well.  Sunnyside and Miraloma are feeder schools of Denman.  More and more graduates of those schools are enrolling at Denman every year.  It's a great school with a warm and caring staff and community.  The PTSA is growing fast and works hard to support the school.

National MS Society - Waves to Wine ride, September 3 - For the first time our whole family will participate in this two day, 90 mile ride to raise money for the National MS Society as part of the team, people in purple. My mother struggled with multiple sclerosis for many years.  When she passed, we formed our team in honor of her, the lady in purple, from the play for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf which she produced, directed and starred in when she was forced to retire because of MS.

Or Shalom Jewish Community, September 17 - Just in time for Rosh Hashana.  

I'm right next to the Sunnyside Conservatory on Monterey Blvd.  Bring a jar for $1 off your honey.  I ship, too!  $15 gets you 11.25 ounces in one of those cute honey bear containers.  Hope to see you some day soon.  


  1. Had a nice turnout for the Denman PTSA fundraiser. Met a new Denman family and a couple of neighbors, and saw friends from Denman and Miraloma. We raised $157! Hope the Waves to Wine fundraising day (September 3) does as well

  2. This Wednesday, September 3, all honey sales will benefit the National MS Society and help our Waves to Wine team reach our goal of raising $4500! Please come and support people in purple in our efforts to end this terrible disease.

  3. Well the Waves to Wine fundraiser didn't do so well. But we still raised $41 for the National MS Society. You can still sponsor our team, people in purple, until Nov1st:

  4. Or Shalom faired better! We raised $135! Plus we donated 16 jars of honey for new year celebrations for the school! Shana tovah!
