(WFRV) – Now you don’t have to wonder what a day in the life a bee is like.
The Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center held a two-part workshop event on Saturday featuring two local apiaries for residents interested in learning about bees.
During the event, attendees learned about the hives, the life cycle of bees, and even get to extract a honeycomb with their hands.
Rawley Point Honey, LLC Beekeeper Dean Greenwood shared, “The importance of being able to plant pollinator-friendly flowers, plants, different things like that around their yards and parks.”
The second workshop featured Natures Hex which provided information on how much honey bees produce, local vs national brands of honey, as well as what environment is best for the bees.
Organizers also noted the importance of limiting the use of pesticides as much as possible.
