Do you know how many eyes a bee has (it’s not two!), or which part of its body it uses to taste with (not its tongue!)?

About this event

Or how many hundreds of miles flying it takes to make one teaspoon of honey for your toast? If the answer is no, this talk will inform, amaze and entertain you.

Beekeeper and author Richard Rickitt gives a fascinating and entertaining talk about bees and beekeeping. You will find out about the extraordinary lifecycle of honey bees, how they live, communicate, make honey and pollinate our food.

The talk will be of interest to anyone who gardens, would like to know more about bees and beekeeping, wants to know how to help the bees or who just enjoys a bit of honey on their porridge. After the talk there will be an opportunity to walk around the gardens looking at the different kinds of bees to be found on the flowers there.

Arriving for 10.30am: Meet Richard in the Yeo Yurt for a coffee, after which the talk and walk will happen, before making your way back to the yurt for some Q&A time. Event draws to a close about 12.30pm after which you have run of the garden.
