ADOPT-A-HIVE PROGRAM: School and Nonprofit Campus Beehive Program

Let us bring a  beehive to your school campus! Planet Bee educators will provide lessons for the students at the hive and students will be able to suit up, see live honey bees in action, and even open the hive to investigate frames of bees (with proper protective gear of course)! Our beekeepers will maintain the hive with the opportunity for staff, students and community members to shadow and learn the trade in individualized, intimate lessons. We even lead a honey-spinning in the fall, one of the sweetest rewards to working with honey bees!

Our Adopt-A-Hive Program integrates our Humble Honey Bee lesson and age appropriate, hands-on activities into your school’s curriculum, all centered around the campus hive. Our interdisciplinary education program is in line with the Next Generation Science Standards. 

In 2012, the Environmental Defense Fund recommended our Adopt-A-Hive Program in their summer issue

We are deeply committed to environmental justice and therefore offer sponsorships and sliding scale fees. Please contact our Executive Director Debra at or 415-235-8959, if you are interested in our program.
