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 for a few hours per week between May and September (days and opening times for 2014 to be provided soon). Group visits are arranged outside these times on a Tuesday or a Thursday between 1st May and 15th July.
To book a school or group visit on a Tuesday or a Thursday (between 1st May and 15th July 2014), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
