Planting for Bees

Sunday 6th August 2017, 11:00am  ($30 per family)

We loved this workshop so much last year that we can’t wait to offer it again. 

This is a hands on all-age workshop where we talk about the importance of bees in our gardens and in the food production cycle

We will spend time making seed bombs, bee baths, finding out what flowers and plants attract bees, looking at honey comb and brood comb.

We will learn how to identify drones, juveniles, foragers and the queen bee and…  have a little bit of taste testing 🙂

You will come away from the workshop ready to get out into the garden and create biodiversity corridors in your local area.

All materials supplied.
