Dan the Bee Man will host this engaging and interactive workshop designed to stimulate all the senses. He will bring his hive and demonstrate an active honey extraction, providing the children with an insight into the workings of a bee-hive and even a yummy taste test!. He will demonstrate what makes up a hive, the bee lifecycle and how the bees make honey.
His workshops are tailored to provide age appropriate information and allow plenty of time for the children to guide the discussion and ask questions. Bees help our environment and are so important in our food systems. For instance did you know that over 30% of the worlds fruit trees rely on bees for pollination? Without our buzzy friends to help pollinate, many of our delicious fruits like cherries, berries and almonds simply wouldn’t be available!
This school holiday workshop will be educational and a lot of fun so come and join the buzz!
Activity: Active hive demonstration, honey taste-testing and education session with Q&A discussion about bees.
Dan the Bee Man has turned his hobby of beekeeping into an educational business to share the joy of beekeeping and fresh honey to people all over Australia, whilst also promoting the idea of suburban beekeeping and bringing necessary bees back into the city.
Featuring over 4 acres of food, cottage and bush gardens each season provides different delights and inspiration to both experienced and aspiring gardeners. The gardens are filled with plants which thrive in central Victoria’s cold winters and hot dry summers. A huge range of daffodils, hellebores and other flowering bulbs bring the garden to life in spring.
Visitors can admire the colour and beauty of our perennial flower borders throughout summer and autumn with hardy, long flowering perennials creating an amazing cottage garden display amongst our Australian bush setting.
The Garden has been certified organic since 2008 and Digger’s range of perennials, bulbs and heirloom vegetables are grown at St Erth using the best organic methods. Seasonal produce from our kitchen gardens is served at St Erth café throughout the year.
