Garden Science - Insects

How do bees see? Where does honey come from? How do flowers use colours, perfume and shapes to attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators? So many questions to explore! In the morning session, you will go on a bug hunt, become a bee in our “Pollination Game” and find out all the interesting details about our little friends. In the afternoon, you will collect loose parts and create an Insect Hotel.

If you book the morning and the afternoon "Garden Science" program, we will supervise your children over lunch. (BYO Lunch)
