Urban agriculture has piqued your curiosity? This interactive and sensorial workshop is perfect! Assisted by an Alvéole beekeeper, you will explore the concepts of pollination and the vulnerability of insects in the context of large-scale agriculture. Finally you’ll consolidate your discovery of the links between these pollinators and human food through sensory activities with actual products of pollination - flowers, fruits and vegetables!

This workshop coincides with the annual Plan Sale hosted by the Learning Zone and grOCAD!

Due to limited space, participation is first-come-first-served. Workshop will begin at 1:45pm sharp.
