Inside the beehive

Join beekeeper Doug Purdie (The Urban Beehive) as he takes you ‘behind the scenes’ to discover the inner workings of a buzzing beehive.

Doug will demonstrate how a hive’s construction allows for honey to be extracted and will offer advice on how you can start attracting these tiny but important pollinators to your garden!

Come along with any questions you may have. After the talk, you’ll have the opportunity to wander into the kitchen garden and view the hives that produce our signature honey.
