Schools & Field Trips

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.  Click here to view details about our events.

Location

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 & our food supply
  • Bee biology & life in the hive
  • Beekeeping basics
  • Honey & Products of the hive

I offer 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).
