Help Wanted – Marketing Intern

3rd Annual Philadelphia Honey Festival – Marketing Intern

The organizing team behind the Philadelphia Honey Festival is searching for a creative and motivated person to assist in developing a marketing campaign for this year’s festival, which will take place the weekend of September 7-9. Bartram’s Garden, the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild, the Wagner Free Institute of Science, and Wyck Historic House & Garden are the core collaborators.  Last year’s event attracted close to 1,000 people who enjoyed a variety of activities designed to highlight the importance (and sweet rewards!) of bees and beekeeping in Philadelphia.
