Bee Keeping @ Killruddery House & Gardens @ Killruddery House & Gardens
Aug 1 @ 10:00 – 15:00

In the week of honey in Killruddery (July 28th -August 3rd), we invite children to become apprentice beekeepers for a day. They will go out to check the hives with Killruddery Beekeeper, Liam McGarry, keeping a safe distance. Back at Honey HQ, they will see the bees at work in an observation hive (an active hive in a glass observation unit). The junior beekeepers will then walk and talk with Honey Bee Activitist, Alys Fowler. Alys and the kids will identify pollinator insects and partake in fun activities that will help the kids learn the role of pollinators in the food chain and in nature.
Knowing where honey comes from and how it gets there in the first place, the apprentice beekeepers will take part in the extraction process. They will finish the day by heaping the honey that they have just extracted on fresh bread! With a lovely class inspired lunch, games in the garden, elevenses and afternoon snacks, it will be a day of fun and food! Whether you have a budding beekeeper, chef, entomologist, nutritionist, zoologist or just a kid that loves food – this will be a good day for all!
Age group: 7 – 12 years
