We have some busy bees down on the Dvoor Farm!
The 4-H Creative Club has installed bee boxes and will be bringing honey bees to the farm this Saturday to help pollinate the meadow. The boxes are located away from the farm trail but we caution you to be aware of bees buzzing about.
Honey bees are essential to food production. They play a vital role in our native ecosystems as pollinators to many plants and food crops. Many bees’ zigzag flight patterns help increase the chances of cross pollination.
The club will return to the Dvoor Farm on multiple occasions to check on the Queen, making sure she’s laying eggs and that the worker bees are building up wax.
