The Honeybee: What’s All the Buzz About? – Hosted by “BeesMake LLC”
This workshop’s syllaBUZZ will have you saying, “show me the HONEY!”
Experience the world of bees through the lens of a beekeeper, the science of the insect, and their relationship with flowers and fruit. Learn the importance of a honeybee’s job in their ecosystem, the domestication process, their conservation status, and how we can keep their populations stable for future generations. As a bonus, there will be a local honey tasting at the end of the course!
General admission to the Gardens is included in the course fee.
Warning: different types of sample hives will be brought as demonstration props. This class takes place indoors. Please do not register for this class if you have any bee sting-related allergies.
