On his most recent F2F trip to Jamaica, volunteer Tom Hebert spent a Sunday afternoon working with the Robin's Bay Bee Club, the island's first children's beekeeping club. The main item on the agenda was a presentation about beekeeping around the world. Tom wanted the children to see how beekeeping can differ greatly from one country to the next and how it can also share some commonalities. Halfway through the presentation, the children wanted to do some hands on activities so they went outside to help Tom assemble materials for making a top bar hive from banana leaves. Once the kids went back inside, they drew some pictures of bees. Enjoy some of their creations below!
