SSC Funding Agreement - Hives for Beekeeping Club

Posted by Cathy Liebowitz on March 26, 2018

As a new student organization on campus, the Beekeeping Club will install and maintain two new bee hives located at the Sustainable Student Farm (SSF). Any honey produced will get sold at the SSF weekly stand on campus. Students will learn beekeeping skills as well as an appreciation for honey production. In addition, having the bees located at SSF will increase crop output, bettering local food production. The allocated funding will go towards the bee hive installation as well as the bees.

This proposal directly funds:

  1. Fencing
  2. Bees
  3. Beekeeping personal safety equipment
  4. Beekeeping supplies
