Bee Keeping at the GEC
Volunteer, Helen Loughrey, has placed two bee hives behind our main office building, directly outside the lower level classroom window. Through a combination of careful upkeep and a vast knowledge of bee keeping, Helen and her team are able to take full advantage of these hives. With both honey and pollenating benefits, the bees have been a great addition to the GEC. Thanks to the help of our greenhouse interns, the hive also has a pollinator garden within close proximity.
