Day 6

Tracy and Kevin Prill and Eric Johnson shared details of being apiarists or beekeepers.  Tracy presented a Powerpoint on the types and life of bees,  Kevin demonstrated the workings of a hive, and Eric opened his hive and allowed students to look (from a safe distance) at what the honeycombs look like.

Students also learned about the benefits of bees as pollinators for gardens and agriculture as well as ways to improve habitat for bees.

A review of the sustainability poster lead to a discussion of ways that students in this course are practicing or highlighting sustainable and regenerative practices, including:  No-till, integrated pest management, composting, cover crops, and diversification of plants.
