BuzzWorks Community Bee Garden is planted with flowers and vegetables that need bees and is open for family, school and group visits. The Bee School has an educational exhibition in six chapters which explains the fascinating world of the honey bee, while an observation hive gives a close-up view of honey bees at work. Courtyard tables provide an outdoor classroom and a place to picnic.
