Honey Harvest at Linden!
By Soteira Briginshaw, Lead Teacher
On September 15th, Linden students of all ages came to the roof to observe our first honey harvest from our rooftop beehive. Thanks to a partnership with Alvéole, our hive full of bees have been busy making trips back and forth to Rosedale gardens and the nearby ravine for nectar and pollen.
Next week, all Linden students will attend a workshop on urban beekeeping where they will learn about the practical aspects of beekeeping and the significance of urban beekeeping in today's world.
Alvéole beekeepers estimate that we will have about 10 to 15 kilograms of honey which some students will help extract and jar in October. We will let you know soon how you can get your very own jar of Linden honey! If you have any questions about the rooftop hive or the Alvéole partnership, please email Soteira or check out the Alvéole website.
