If you Google the term ‘Sustainability ‘ you’ll get over 76 million hits! It is so broad it can incorporate almost anything including bees. Northern Beaches Permaculture in conjunction with Warringah Council are running a Sustainable Schools Art Competition which you can enter to win a Native Stingless Beehive for your school! Called stingless because they do not sting, they are safe for children and we are seeing more and more of these installed in childcare centres nationally.
Whilst bee populations worldwide continue to decline due to over population and development, the risk to our food security increases. We must create opportunities for Native Bees to thrive and do what they do best – pollinate food crops.
Long under valued because of their lower honey production, the Australian Native Bee is now being recognised and valued for its true purpose and function; pollination AND protecting biodiversity.
We invite you TO BE part of this very important movement towards real food PRODUCTION and security. A security which is independent AND promoting a healthy lifestyle and protection of our native flora and fauna.
Links to KLA’s include Creative Arts, Language, PDHPE, Maths. This Art project will enable you to meet many learning outcomes whilst also educating students, colleagues and families towards community sustainability, an appreciation of the natural world and food security.
All aboard the Bee Train! If not for yourself, then for your children and the generations to come.
