Bee Awareness School Program
Bee Awareness Society has received a $500 grant for new hives for new glass observation bee hives at Hume and Wildflower schools in Nelson. “We teach the school children the life cycle of the honeybee, basics of pollination, why it is important, risk to all pollinators and what students, their families and community can do to reduce the risk to all pollinators in their own back yard. We instill responsible stewardship to the school children at an early age so that this generation can make a difference now and in the future.”
AFKO has received a $250 grant for the irrigation system for their community garden. Along with providing access to french culture and language, they also have a strong environmental policy. What better way to bring people together than over a shared garden plot where community members can share knowledge, laughs, and of course, food?
