School Legacy Project
~Our School Project~
The intention for our Green Legacy project is to encourage children from primary/secondary schools in the UK to engage with biodiversity and understand the importance of the bees in a creative and engaging manner.
The Green Legacy Project is as follows:
1. Give schools empty beehives to paint according to one of four Commonwealth/Scottish themes (Bannockburn 700, 100th anniversary of WW1, Commonwealth Games sport/country and Scottish book/author).
2. Carry out startling and intuitive presentations at the schools regarding biodiversity and bees.
3. Showcase videos and photographs of the project’s progress on our online ‘digital wall’.
4. Allow the public to vote on the winner on various web and social media sites.
5. Award a prizes of £200 to the school that wins in each category.
6. Return the painted hives to the school and manage the bees there for a year.
7. Twenty four jars of honey made from the hives will be bottled and gifted to the schools who can then design the labels for their jars of honey – providing a further opportunity for engagement.
