Is your class or group studying bees or pollinators? We offer group farm tours & bee experiences. These mini classes are perfect for STEM-minded elementary & middle school classes, potential beekeepers, garden clubs, scouts, book groups, or families looking for a close up experience with nature.
Events can be at our bee yards (Pittsboro or Garner, NC) or at your location indoors or out.
Fields of Study
I offer several topics, which can be tailored to your studies including:
- Pollination in the garden & food supply
- Bee biology & life in the hive
- Products of the hive & the benefits of honey
I provide observation hives, digital presentations, lots of visual materials, hands-on activities, games & scavenger hunts, take home references, and an optional hands-in-the-hive time. Teachers can access pre & post tour curriculum to extend or enrich the experience. Plus everyone leaves with a bit of honey to celebrate the day!
Cost & Scheduling
Fees vary with the group size and duration but average about $10/student. On-farm events are highly seasonal and weather dependent. April & May are peak season – so please book early! Off-farm events are more flexible and available year round. Note that observation hives are not available October -March (the bees are in winter cluster).
