On Wednesday morning, the 15th of October, 7 wooden frames were taken out of The Learning Hub’s beehive. (Images courtesy of Bernie Hannan. Thanks, Bernie!)
The beehive itself was formed 6 months ago with the introduction of 500 bees. There are now up to 10,000 of them in residence. Inside the hive are 4 chambers in which the wooden frames sit. From the 7 frames taken out of it today, 16 jars of honey were collected! Sweet! In addition to that, 2 big tubs of beeswax were gathered! You never know, we may make Learning Hub-style candles out of it yet!
