Event description

Time for some buzzing bee fun! 

Bring the kids along to our 1 hour engaging and educational programs to teach young minds about the importance of bees. 

Your kids will:

- get up close and personal with live honey bees from one of the resident Hives at Burnetts on Barney, through a viewing frame. 

- learn about pollination, nectar, bee life cycles, how bees make honey, and how we cant survive without them. 

- learn about honey bee anatomy by colouring in the parts of the bees. 

- learn why it is crucial we keep planting as many flowering plants as we can to ensure all our native and honey bees survive

- get to taste some honey straight from one of our hives. 

- try on a real beekeeper suit !

Ideal for primary kids aged 5 - 12 years. 

Children should wear warm clothes and closed-toe shoes and bring a water bottle.  The workshop will be outside around the cafe area of Burnetts on Barney. 

Parents welcome to stay or have a coffee at the Quarry Cafe and make use of the time to do some garden shopping at the award-winning nursery - Burnetts on Barney. Think of all the plants you can take home and plant with your newly inspired kids :) 

 $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Wheen Bee Foundation, a group doing incredible research work on bee and habitat improvement and sustainability
