WHAT TO EXPECT/ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
Immerse yourself in the notes of the wood and its several functions and discover its supply chain, from the origins to the construction of a beehive. During the laboratory you will get to know the world of bees, how to build a beehive and how it is managed. Together with us you will create a handmade souvenir to take home with you. And finally, you will taste our honey and jams.
An educational beehive to admire the complex social life of bees and the roles of each one of them. You can discover all the secrets of the queen bee and learn about the role that each bee plays within the hive. The wood used comes from Val di Sole; you can touch it and understand how it was used in the past and how it has evolved over time.
