March 2017 Recipients
The “Bee Boys” from Bayview School received a $2,105.68 grant to set up a beehive for their school.
The Bee Boys have been learning about the life cycle and habitats of bees at school and how they are endangered and wanted to do something to help.
The Bees will also aid the growth of the school orchard and gardens, due to the bees pollinating the flowers.
A bee keeper will assist them with the project and teach them how to care for the bees and the hive once it is up and running. They also plan to bottle the honey produced from the honey comb and give it away to school families and the local community.
