TAKING CARE OF BEESNESS
The Canada Agriculture and Food Museum
901, promenade Prince of Wales, Ottawa, (Ontario), K1G 5A3
There’s a new buzz at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum: bees! See how bees produce honey and many other by-products, and explore the role and tools of the beekeeper. Check out the Museum’s live hive and try to find the queen among all the workers and drones. There’s a reason we have the saying “busy as a bee”. These tiny toilers don’t just make honey and beeswax. They also play an essential role in pollinating Canadian food crops such as blueberries and apples. If you can’t visit the Taking Care of Beesness exhibition, or to find out even more, check out the Bees: A Honey of an Idea virtual exhibition.
