Hi Everyone,

We are still in need of volunteers to help facilitate the family activities, staff the welcome table, help the bands set up, and celebrate our first honey harvest this year. See below for more information about the activities for the Meet the Bees.

There are two volunteer shifts:

Morning Shift: 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Afternoon Shift: 12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Please email me at with your shift preference if you would like to help out this Saturday.

Thanks so much,

Special Family Event: Meet the Bees!

Saturday July 28th, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., free

Come on out to the Garfield Park Conservatory's Demonstration Garden for a day of bee fun! Our summer honey is coming off the hives and it's time to celebrate.Our volunteer bee keepers will be posted at education stations throughout the garden, ready to answer your questions about our hard-working insect friends. Kid and family activities include designing your own bee goggles, crafting a nectar cup, learning a groovy bee hive dance, and exploring the growing ingredients of a special flower scavenger hunt. Plus you will be able to purchase honey made right here by our Conservatory bees, listen to live music, and last but not least – get a good taste of honey! Please, come join in the buzz.
