As part of our sustainability we have a number of ideas we would like to put in place.
We’re looking at having bee hives; they’re cheap, local & every part of the bee’s process can be used and put to good use as an end product.
We’ve been in touch with an organisation regarding some training and seen how easy it is to create the hives and some of the protective clothing.
It’s projects like this that the children can take away with them to use independently when they leave the centre. At the same time it gives C.R.E.E.R another source of food and possibly income if there’s surplus honey; as well as using the beeswax to profit the centre.
