We have the opportunity to work with a group (The Bee Cause Project) who will provide a grant for us to install a beehive on a high school campus. It would be placed in the Ag area away from buildings and heavy student traffic. The project will allow our Ag students to become more familiar with the plight of the honey bee and to be hands on with the hive as needed. The obvious concern that comes to mind are allergies. Does anyone have a hive on campus? How does this work for you? What are everyone’s thoughts on the risk vs. reward of hosting a hive?
