What You'll Do

The honeybee is in crisis, and Christi Baughman explains why during this hands-on journey into the hive. But she also demonstrates how beekeeping at a local level can help address that crisis. After you put on the appropriate protective gear, Baughman opens up a few of her 100 hives so that you can observe colony activity and sample honey fresh from its source.

  • Honeybees 101
    Beekeeper Christi Baughman teaches you about the honeybee's anatomy and how it produces honey.

  • Look Inside the Hive
    You'll don a provided beekeeper suit and gloves to peek inside working beehives, where you'll learn to identify workers, drones, and the queen.

  • Take-Home Treats
    Leave the experience with honey samples in two-ounce jars, as well as seeds for growing honeybee-friendly flowers.
