Experience the wonder of honey bees in a beautiful, urban farm setting! Bees are so important to our environment and I want to help you learn more about how bees live together in the hive and function as a superorganism.

After touring the beautiful urban farm and spotting the many blooming flowers with pollinators busy collecting nectar and pollen, we will move to the apiary (that's where the bees are kept) where you'll suit up and become a beekeeper with me. This experience is fun and engaging for anyone curious about the secret life of bees or connecting with nature.

You don't have to be interested in becoming a beekeeper to have a great time. You will see the bees up close and personal as you closely inspect each frame in the hive. I'll point out the different jobs the bees are doing, explain how they make honey, show you the baby bees and maybe even spot the queen bee.

We'll conclude with a honey tasting including seasonal fruit so you can taste the honey made by the bees you visited in the apiary. During the honey tasting held near the greenhouse and orchard, we'll talk more about bees, pollination and honey.

Other things to note
Please wear full-length pants, socks that completely cover ankles and closed-toe shoes. Let me know of any bee, food or honey allergies. You might consider wearing unscented sunscreen and bringing a hat for the farm walk.
