New Residents on Campus!

We are delighted to announce that four healthy hives of stingless bees moved into their new homes on the Three Generation Farm on Tuesday last week. The hives were provided as part of an expansion of the UrbanBee Project #99hives, which has also provided hives to amateur fosters in Bangkok and Seoul. Since the start of the term, IEP students have been busy identifying suitable locations for the hives, and sawing bamboo to make stands and roofs so they can stay safe and cool.

We were working towards a June ‘due date’ but sustainably sourced hives were found sooner, so after a few last minute preparations on the farm (thank you Ajarn Ter!), we were ready just in time! IEP students have already been back at the farm helping our new arrivals feel at home. We will also be communicating how they live and benefit our environment to the community – so watch this space!

If anyone is interested in getting involved, please let me know as there are definitely many opportunities to collaborate with other subject areas. In the meantime, you can follow what’s buzzing on Instagram @prem.beeproject
