We'll cover:

  • An introduction to bees and facts about different bee species
  • Why bees are important and how we can encourage bees to our garden
  • How bees pollinate flowers and a fun experiment to demonstrate the bee pollination process
  • How to create a bee-friendly garden
  • Bee-friendly flowers and planting our own lavender to take home
  • Why bees need our help and how we can do our bit to ‘Save the Bees’
