As much as bees are central to our environment, schools are central to our communities. Working with Cardiff University Pharmabees project, we have access to invaluable educational resources. Our aim is to provide children with hands-on experiences and to gain a clear understanding about the importance of these amazing creatures and associated benefits. We offer 'bee experience days', talks and maximise the use of Social Media platforms and radio, providing information to help deliver a very clear message about the issues facing pollinators, and to help generate enthusiasm by encouraging children to take action.

SO, WHAT CAN YOU DO?
By adopting a local hive for your school, you can make a great difference to your local bee population, plus help to conserve a local meadow and woodland. You can use the approved resources that we provide to teach the children in your schools the importance of bees.
We have curriculum-based content that has been specifically designed and developed by the Cardiff University Pharmacology Department. Through adopting a hive, your school will have access to this invaluable resource.
THE SCHOOLS OPTION INCLUDES
- An adopted beehive with your school logo, located at a bee base registered apiary
- School honey that the children can taste, jar and label
- A visit from your dedicated beekeeper
- A certificate of commitment to biodiversity for your school
- Wildflower meadow seedballs so your school can create its own bee-friendly flower garden
