Bees! Ants! Worms!
An Entomological Experience Like No Other
We're most famous for our honey bees, and are now expanding our critter encounters! Now you can have a most interesting 3-in-1 excursion to a rooftop farm, and go up close to some animals crucial to our ecosystem: Bees, Ants, and Earthworms! This is a 1.5 hr interactive farm experience, perfect for kids and young families, to get them away from the computer screens and interacting with nature!
At the BEE Encounter, don a bee suit and inspect native honeybees' nests up close. Every colony in our apiary is rescued (i.e. saved from extermination), so you are supporting local ecology! Watch them hard at work around the garden harvesting pollen and nectar.
At Secret Life of ANTS, learn more about these insects often misunderstood as 'pests'. Observe different species going about their daily lives in wacky formicariums (underground lairs) and do some live feeding. Your kids will love seeing their wonderful life cycles up close using macrophotography!
At Wiggly WORMS, go on a worm hunt in our bioactive garden! Caress these peaceful critters and understand how they help create healthy soil, which sequesters carbon from the atmosphere. Finally create and take home your own (optional) vermicomposting kit*.
*Vermicomposting, or worm composting, is a simple technology for converting biodegradable waste into organic fertiliser, with the help of earthworms. Vermicompost enhances plant growth.
