Build and maintain a honeybee hive

Learners could start by discovering how important these little friends are to our food production.  Then they could design and build a box hive, acquire and look after the bees, and then harvest the honey for distribution to the community.  Learners could work with the Parks & Recreation department or local farms to see if they can install a larger apiary close to orchards, crops, and public gardens which require frequent pollination.  Sounds like a beeeeautiful project.
