On day one Highveld Honey farm welcomed 15 residents from Our Parents Home along with 20 grade 9 pupils from Yeshiva College. The following day 29 residents from Sandringham Gardens and 38 grade 7 girls from Yeshiva College, visited and on day three, 28 Selwyn Segal residents visited 29 girls from Hirsch Lyons High School.

Each day two beekeepers tought the the groups about bee-keeping, the life of a bee, the benefits of honey and how honey is made.

Afterwards the pupils teamed up with residents to decorate honey jars. Each person decorated a jar for the another in the group and made the effort to connect across generations.

“Brett Falconer, owner of Highveld Honey, was so kind and helpful in allowing us to arrange these visits”, said Yali.  “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed them and they were not only delightful, but also very educational.”
