Dancing Bees Farm enjoyed hosting students from the Einstein School in Charlotte for a tour of the farm. Students enjoyed seeing the bees live and up close as well as the equipment used in harvesting honey. We ended the tour with a question and answer session in the “honey house” complete with a beeswax candle-making lesson . We discussed how important bees are to our food supply and showed all the great products you can make with beeswax!
