NORFOLK-Norfolk Botanical Garden is all abuzz about bees.

The annual Honey Bee Festival is Saturday, August 18, from 10am-4pm.

This year’s message from the Beekeepers Guild of Southeast Virginia is to help the community understand the critical role of bees and to encourage home and business owners to incorporate bee friendly plants in their landscapes and to use organic pesticides versus traditional pesticides with harmful chemicals.

Garden guests will enjoy children’s activities, demonstrations, honey & bee vendors (including handmade jewelry and ceramics), refreshments, live music, a guest appearance by former Miss United States and much more!

Come see the inside a real life bee hive!

The Honey Bee Festival is included with Garden admission and will take place on the Baker Hall Visitor Center terrace.
