Earth Week 2018 marked the beginning of a year long celebration at Pioneer Springs dedicated to helping honey bees. Kindergarteners planted two new fruit trees in the PSCS orchard to provide pollen and nectar for our bee friends. 1st through 6th graders built and decorated beehive boxes. The boxes will be used to start our very own apiary in 2018-19. Many of our favorite foods are highly reliant on bees for pollination including apples, oranges, avocados, blueberries, cherries, and cucumbers. One crop, almonds, depends entirely on the honey bee for pollination at bloom time.
