why we're doing it

The summer of 2022 Shalom and Tranquility Community Garden installed a combined sensory and pollinator space at their community garden. The same year they were gifted a beehive. Due acts of human violence against the hive the colony didn't survive. After the leadership investigated the cause of the hives destruction it was found that the youth and community needed education on the importance of bees and all pollinators. But, How? Before investing in a new colony of bees Lead farmer, Ebonie Randle became a certified Bee Keeper through the Lorain County Beekeepers Association. After the completion of her training a new bee package arrived to the garden Summer 2023. Bee Skool will support the efforts to educate the youth on the importance of bees and pollinators, also preserve the new colony, and have a good time while doing it.
