What You'll Do
There's a metropolis hidden within the Wylde Center's Oakhurst Garden—its citizens just happen to be bees. Under the guidance of Véronique Perrot, guests explore hive society while learning about the lives and social structures of bees during an informational session and tour. Throughout, Véronique also delves into the impact bees have on the world, discussing everything from pollination to how wax and honey are used in beauty products and supplements.
Learn About Pollination
Walk through the Oakhurst Garden, where Veronique points out common pollinators and flowers.
Peer Inside the Hive
Inspect different hives, sample raw honey, and see how bees make wax.
Get Hands-On with Honey
Make a small jar of ginger-infused honey to take home.
Beekeeper and Biologist
For biologist Véronique Perrot, every garden is a laboratory. Amid the soil, the Paris native cultivates plants, studies bees and chickens, and experiments in attracting pollinators using experience and reverence gained while earning her PhD in Evolutionary Biology. To share her expertise, Perrot not only writes for science journals, but teaches about her passions at the non-profit Wylde Center.
