Event description
FARM KIDS SCHOOL HOLIDAYS - Bees Workshop

About this Event

April 16th @ 9.30am - 12.30pm

We start the workshop with an educational, hands on and fun tour of The Farm followed by a discussion of the importance of Bees for our planet and the plight they are facing! We also discuss what we can do to help. We examine the equipment used by a beekeeper and get to try on a bee suit. We make candles out of beeswax and if time permits make coloured clay bees.

What is included?

At the beginning of each workshop we take the children on an educational and fun tour of The Farm. We educate them about our cows, pigs, bees, chickens, flower crops, herb garden, orchard and veggie crops. We discuss concepts like paddock rotation for the animals, pollination, organic farming, healthy soil and composting and other ethical farming practices. The children get up close and personal with our pet chickens and when available we taste veggies, edible flowers and herbs.

Discussion Focus – Bees. Pollination, honey, wax. We have a Bee talk and demonstration. The kids taste the honey straight from the honey tray.

Cooking – We make natural lotion bars

Craft - We make candles out of beeswax and if time permits pet rock bees.

  • Sturdy walking shoes
