Free Bee Safari! Explore The Amazing World Of Bees!- SOLD OUT
Are you interested in learning more about the many species of bee that help pollinate our flowers and food? Come along on a walking trip at the Sharing Farm to take a closer look at our positively perfect pollinators.
We’ll see big furry bumble bees that get a buzz from the pollen on your tomatoes and blueberries. We’ll say hello to the teeny tiny sweat bees that nest in the ground and are more likely to tickle you than sting.
This walk is free and family friendly. Children under the age of 8 need to be accompanied by an adult.
