The Problem

This project we took a trip as a group to our campus beekeeper Ed Popelka where we learned about sustainable beekeeping and the differences between local beekeeping and commercial beekeeping. The goal of this visit was to educate the current group members on why bees are important and what is being done to help their populations.

Our Plan

This project's goal is to educate the current group members of Humans for Animals on ethical and sustainable beekeeping practices. We visited the campus beekeeper Ed Popelka who gave us a tour of his farm and educated us on his practices and how he differs from the global commercial beekeeping businesses. Through this we will learn how bees benefit us and how we can all help the bees!
