Did you know? Beeswax is all natural, non-toxic, non-polluting, non-allergenic, and has a delicious honey-sweet aroma. Beeswax produces negative ions that actually clean your air of odors, pollens, smoke, dust, dust mites, viruses and other allergens and hazards – the only known fuel to do so. As does a rainstorm, beeswax candles leave your air fresher and cleaner – they are a true air purifier. They are the only candle for anyone with chemical sensitivities or allergies. Learn about the history of beeswax and enjoy a hands-on experience.

Children who wish to enroll in this workshop must be 8+ years of age and accompanied by an adult.

All workshop participants will make and take home a molded candle or a pair of rolled candles and workshop handouts.

Pollination 101

Length: 1.5 hours
Date: 
Available by request with minimum 10 participants
Cost: 
Group Rate (min 10 participants) $5.

What do birds and bees have in common? They can both pollinate! During this workshop Dr Bee will be talking about various forms of pollination. Long story short, for a plant to produce seeds, pollination must take place. Dr Bee will show how pollen can be transferred from one flower and placed on the pistil of another flower. Although the focus of this workshop will be on insect pollination, there are two other ways in nature that pollination can also take place: with the aid of wind and self-pollination. This workshop is suitable for youth looking to extend their focused studies as well as gardeners, who wish to maximize the beauty of their gardens.
