Push for beekeeping in schools
A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN the Barbados Agricultural Society and the St George Secondary School could be the first step at introducing beekeeping to other schools.
BAS chief executive officer James Paul said the current partnership with the St George school fell under the Competency-Based Training Fund.
Noting that he was making a special appeal to the schools, Paul said: “I am hoping to use that as a means of promoting beekeeping, even in that school but in the wider school community.”
Paul was speaking at the opening ceremony of a PermApiculture workshop, co-hosted by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) and the BAS, at the BAS’ headquarters in Beckles Road. (HLE)
