The Minnesota Project’s Fruits of the City program is partnering with The Beez Kneez to offer a hands-on class on bees and pollination at the JD Rivers Children’s Garden 2900 Glenwood Ave North Minneapolis, MN 55422 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm on May 20th, 2014.

Honey bees pollinate 1/3 of the food we eat, and they’re in trouble.  Beekeepers lose 30-45% of the hives annually.  Learn more about why bees are dying, how important they are to the food we eat, and what we can do to help them.

In this class, we’ll put you in a beekeeping suit, we’ll open up one of the Beez Kneez hives and learn more by safely exploring a working colony.  Meet the queen, see the brood, and if the hive is ready, taste honey straight from the bees!
