The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Change the planet

Wow! Stop right there am I serious. That’s a hefty title. Am I changing the planet? Yesterday I checked out our third beehive. It’s due to be installed at a sister school in the next town. The first two we established last year are in separate towns, one where we live and one in the opposite direction. Together they form a chain. A small band of pollination. Counting bees before they fly is risky. We have only been bee keepers for two years and gave already had a colony loss so I try to be realistic but the process of establishing our hives is going well.
Of course most people want to know how much honey we’ll make. The film ‘more than honey’ springs to mind. Our bees have united people. One colony sits next to the hives of a master bee keeper who has changed our lives. The next supports our allotment where we’ve already seem improvements in the harvest. The latest is dye to pollinate minds. As the people of our school learn about bees. So knowledge, produce and minds are the harvest already!
