Bees

In the last few years, we've lost our resident Bee Keeper... but the good news is that we have a contact with someone new, and are hopeful that he will agree to help us in 2007... stay tuned!

Bee Keeping and honey production, is an ancient art, that hasn't changed much over the centuries. The students get to see all of the tools of the trade, plus a live sealed honeycomb where bees are working hard to make honey while they watch.
