We owe a great deal to the bees and it is our goal to give back as much as we can!
One of our on going BEE projects is our t-shirt/smock campaign. We offer our Bee Alive in the Hive t-shirts at a set price (to be announced) to our students which they can then personalize in class and then keep for future classes. The profits of the sale will go to the local bee projects The Hive supports.
This idea was inspired by Grace Mallen and Mia Daugenet, both ten years old who both drew a similar picture of a tree surrounded by bees with the words More trees, More air. They wanted to start a t-shirt campaign to save the trees. This idea was so loved that many inspired ideas sprouted from it and this t-shirt campaign is one of them, we just need to add More Bees, More Trees, More Air.
A second ongoing project is our community Bee Garden. We have a garden plot at Centennial Park and we tend to the garden with the children during designated classes. We educate ourselves about what Bees like so that we may have a thriving Bee Garden for the whole community to enjoy.
