Garden Walk with a Beekeeper
Bring the whole family for a fun afternoon on the farm to talk about BEES, HONEY and the PLANTS that you need in your yard to attract POLLINATORS! Jamie Beyer, beekeeper and President of the Central Iowa Beekeepers Association will talk bees, while Nicole, Horticulturist and owner of RGF will talk about the plants the bees love! RGF is proud to partner with Beyer’s Bees to sell their honey which is produced within 3 miles of the farm. This event is $10/family and you will receive a 1 lb jar of honey for attending. All kids in attendance will get a free honey bear bottle of honey too! Come sip honey lemonade with us as we walk about the gardens talking all things pollinators! Sign up at the right.
