Melissa Ballantyne our very passionate beekeeper filmed a video at Crown St on how bees are part of the kitchen garden program at Crown St. It was very exciting as we were specially selected along with Taronga Zoo and Parramatta City Council.
Melissa chatted to Ang Becroft about the Kitchen Garden program and how the introduction of bees to the school has increased awareness and understanding of how important bees are.
Students as young as five are learning that we need bees to survive and that by planting and caring for the garden and environment they are actively conserving and protecting our native bee population. Students are also learning about sustainability, ecosystems and pollination.
