What you'll do
You will visit our apiary and butterfly garden in an urban community farm setting. We will tour the property and share the permaculture programs particular to this site. We will find a comfortable place in this beautiful setting and outline our pollinator program reviewing the importance of the honeybees in our urban setting. Your experience will include donning protective gear and going inside the beehive. We will give you first hand, eyes on understanding of how these miracles of evolution function inside the hive. We will then share the fruits of their labor and have a honey tasting. For those uncomfortable with direct access to the hive, we also have observation windows for you to enjoy the program.
