Beekeeping and Schools

Beekeeping and Schools

Keeping honey bees at school is very possible. 


Many higher education institutions and K-12 schools are interested in establishing apiaries on campus. By studying honey bees and other pollinators, children can learn about the importance of a healthy food supply and begin developing the skills necessary to act as stewards of the environment. Having a fundamental education in beekeeping is vital to be a successful beekeeper. A lack of knowledge and education is the reason so many new beekeepers are giving up out of frustration. Some YouTube videos, books or classes make beekeeping seem so easy and simple. Many beekeepers are not properly informed about the challenges and management tools needed to keep bees alive.
