Bees! Ants! Worms!

An Entomological Experience Like No Other

 

We're most famous for our honeybees, 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 nest in our apiary is a rescue, so you are supporting local ecology! Watch them hard at work around the garden harvesting pollen and nectar.

At the Ant Encounter, learn more about these misunderstood insects. Observe a variety of species in their formicarium (underground lair) and try some macrophotography! Do a live feeding session and play with some honey ant art. As a bonus, take home a founding test tube with a queen ant and you can start raising your own colony!

At the Earthworm Encounter, caress these peaceful critters in your hand and understand how they help create healthy soil, which sequesters carbon from the atmosphere. Finally create and take home your own *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.
