About this event

Friday 28th January 2022 @ 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 bee pendants.

What is included?

The Farm Tour

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

  • Bees. Pollination, honey, wax.
  • We have a look at beekeeping equipment and try on the protective suit.
  • The kids taste farm fresh honey.
  • Discuss medicinal properties of honey and bees wax.
