Adopt a Hive Program and Humble Honeybee Project

Have you heard the buzzzz?  Alamo is getting its own beehive!

Our school has been selected to participate in Planet Bee Foundation’s Adopt a Hive Program as well as the Humble Honeybee Project. A beekeeper from Planet Bee will be working with third grade classes for the next two years to install a beehive, maintain it, and run a honey-spinning event. The Humble Honeybee workshop will provide our students with an extra full day of lessons.

With a focus on education, awareness, and stewardship, the Planet Bee program aims to teach children and adults the importance of the honeybee to our ecosystem. Their mission: to change the world one bee at a time! Find out more about the Planet Bee program at

If you are interested in training to maintain the beehive, becoming an active bee steward, please contact Andrea Flint Oberto,
