Augusta Township is very excited to become the 40th municipality in Canada to join the Bee City Program. We recognize that increasing opportunities for pollinators will make our community more colourful, vibrant, sustainable, and both agriculturally and economically productive. Agriculture has been a pillar of our local economy for more than two centuries, and pollinator promotion programs will help ensure that agriculture remains strong in Augusta for generations to come.

Teaching our students about biodiversity loss is extremely important at our school. We strongly feel that highlighting how bees are struggling nowadays is a perfect way to help our students understand that their actions can be instrumental in not only curbing the decline but helping to reverse it.

It is important to us to become a Bee City School as we are located in a rural setting and many of our students recognize the impact that society and agricultural practices have had on pollination. They also put in practice horticultural methods that will support the needs of bees, which will in turn, improve the environment for essential pollination. Our students are well informed and passionate about making positive change. Joining this campaign along with other local schools shows a great commitment to the cause.

Teaching students about the importance of environmental stewardship is a key principle of the Mulberry Waldorf curriculum. We value hands-on experiences to enhance student learning and strive to teach our students that they are part of a wider community of individuals and groups who can inspire us and engage us in incredible initiatives. We feel that being recognized as a Bee City Canada School would model how to participate in such a community for the collective health of the environment. We are excited to learn from schools in the Bee City network and look forward to sharing our best practices.

It is important to become a Bee City school because it will help the Eco Team develop new initiatives. Many students are committed to helping the environment and are looking for more ways in which they could help. This opportunity would allow students a clear way to help the environment – by helping bees! Having Bee City Canada outline what we should be doing within the school, including promoting and educating about pollinators, helps us understand what our goals should look like. Becoming a Bee School also gives us credibility within the community and shows them we are actively making a difference.
