Spring Beekeeping & Gardening

Saturday, April 13 | 10:00–4:00

Children's Craft:  Bee Home (11:00–3:00)

Spring is a busy time for bees and beekeepers alike, and today you’ll learn about what makes a healthy hive. Meet our honeybees, peek inside their hive, and find out what they do for us around the farm and in the gardens.

A 45-minute presentation about “Life in a Honeybee Colony” will begin at 11:00. At 1:00, weather permitting, Howell Farm beekeeper Johanna Swartzentruber will open the hives and check the health of the colony by looking at the bees and their work on the comb.

Follow us!


Howell Farm is owned by the County of Mercer and operated by the Mercer County Park Commission
