Melanie needed new bees so we went to a school garden that had bees in the irrigation box. Kathy is the teacher taking care of the beautiful garden (Robin gave her our info and was our photographer).
She wanted to make sure the bees were saved. It was a small hive and easy to remove from the irrigation box lid. The brood comb looked great. We tied the comb into Melanie's frames and we were done in no time.
We left some bee free comb for Kathy who wants to discuss how important bees are with the children. Maybe we can bring them an observation hive to see and learn from.
