The Secret Life of Bees

Where would we be without the humble honeybee? In this exclusive open hive experience, Amanda Collins and Scott Denno of Backyard Beekeeping, will guide you through an intimate exploration of a live honeybee hive. See, hear and smell the aromas of the hive at work as Amanda and Scott talk you through the fascinating machinations of the colony – the captivating world of the most industrious insect in the world, the European Honeybee. And of course, we’ll taste some of the sweet stuff too!
