Children were treated to a lesson on pollen and bees June 29 at the Children’s Learning Garden in Lewes. Led by the Beekeeping Club’s Pam Meader, children learned the important role bees play in nature, and the similarities and differences between bees and humans. They also had an opportunity to take cotton swabs into the garden to find pollen in the flowers and plants before getting an up-close-and-personal look at an observation hive with busy bees at work. The day ended with crackers and honey for all in attendance.
