To obtain a bee hive stocked with bees for 3 main goals:
1. Observation of propagation to be used for educational purposes (among the public school and home-school communities)
2. To improve pollination of local vegetable gardens and other plant communities in the area
3. For honey production used to benefit area families
Our project will provide at least one working bee hive in the community. This hive will be used to educate the public about the importance of honey bees and the benefits of local honey. The project will also greatly benefit the pollination of community gardens, fruits trees, etc. Once the hive is established we plan to welcome our local home-school community and interested classes from the public school to observe the hive, help with potential honey extraction and processing, and to collaborate with these entities to continue honey bee improvement projects in our community.
