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. This fully accessible site is situated on the edge of the Old Hale Way Allotments and is open to the public on selected days between May and September:
Open Days: BuzzWorks is now closed for the winter season. Open days will be posted here early in 2015.
Taster Days for prospective beekeepers: will be advertised here early in 2015.
School visits are hosted on a Tuesday or a Thursday (between May and July).
Other group visits by arrangement.
HoneyWorks Training Centre for Beekeeping is where you can learn how to keep honey bees and extract honey and is also a base for other wildlife projects. It lies within Burford Way Allotments, backing on to Oughtonhead Nature Reserve.
Honey - We sell our honey and related hive products (e.g. soaps, balms, candles) at the Hitchin Craft & Farmers' Market (last Saturday of each month). Our stall is down by the river opposite St Mary's Church. Come and see us!
We will also have a stall at Hitchin Gala Day on Sunday 14th December in the old Market Place.
Volunteers - If you are interested in honey bees, in gardening for bees or in helping visitors to learn about bees, why not join us? Come to an Open Day and see what we do.
Members - There will be several meetings over the winter season in St. Mark's Church, Lancaster Avenue including films, discussions and talks from invited speakers. Topics of interest to beekeepers and non-beekeepers alike. Come and learn and share your views.
