Babylonstoren – The Secret Life of Bees

October 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Warmer weather brings more buzz to our garden. Cape honeybees are VIP residents at Babylonstoren and in spring they are hard at work foraging for pollen and nectar. Not only do they produce honey for Babel Restaurant, but they also play a key role in the garden ecosystem through pollination.

On our walk through the garden we’ll take a look at the plants favored by bees, from nectar-filled annual flowers to pollen-rich trees. Discover the collection of different shaped bee-hives – from the traditional woven skep, the practical Langstroth with movable. Learn more about the local indigenous Cape honeybee and the basics of beekeeping. Inspect the hives with us while we parade in our beekeeping suits.

Sweet honey will be on the lunch table, to be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price. For hotel guests, the workshop is included in your stay.

R700 pp, book online, 20 places available each day
