Bees pollinate one out of every three bites of food that we consume daily, without them we would be in serious trouble. Bee populations across the globe have been diminishing, in some parts of the world farmers have to hand-pollinate their crops. These series of workshops aim to teach about the importance of bees by teaching about pollination, bee diversity, and the adaptions that honey bees have made in their hives to allow them to be efficient in their jobs.
