June 2018 Report – We’re all Busy Bees!
Permaculture is taught to pupils of MOET. Students are made aware of the importance of how we treat the natural environment, directly impacts how we can use/harvest the natural environment. Amongst other things, pupils learn about the necessary vegetation to attract bees. A swarm of bees came and nested in one of the trees, at MOET. This was an opportunity to have the bees colonise in the beehives hanging in the forest area, close to the institution. At MOET, bees are kept traditionally. Hives are made from a variety of materials such tree bark, hollowed tree trunks, baskets etc. Honey and bees are useful to us human beings and other living things in many different ways. For example, bees help in pollination, and whilst honey tastes delicious, it’s also used to heal wounds, ulcers and scars, not to mention: providing a source of revenue.
