Farmhouse Family Day; Beautiful Bees
- East Flatbush
Join us in making arts and crafts for World Honey Bee Day and explore our historic farm and grounds all during Family Day!
Take a break from this hot and rainy August weather as we learn about the importance of bees and how they affect our everyday life. Bring your own bee to life with some simple, easy to use materials right here in our museum! Enjoy lawn games, colonial-era toys, a farm tour, or just a socially distanced picnic on the lawn. Family Day runs from 11-3 and is always free for all ages.
