Making our Pollinators Happy

The Problem

We wish to begin work on a long-term plan for our school park, which will provide pollinator plants for native pollinators and honey bees, produce fruit and nuts for school and community members, and increase park beauty.

Our Plan

My class has chosen to focus on pollinator awareness. We've started a small apiary in the school and working on increasing public awareness. My students are learning to keep honeybees, extract and bottle honey, and use beeswax to make products. Our current obstacle is to increase the availability of pollinating plants by planting fruit and nut trees in the school park
