100 Hives in 100 Schools

The 100 hives in 100 schools project aims to raise the profile of Native Bees for future generations and highlight their value in terms of strategies for diversifying beekeeping in the agricultural and food industry, as well as increasing the numbers of Native Bees as a whole.

¬†Education, Preservation, Diversification, Pollination… for future generations!


We are looking for donations and sponsors big and small to raise $250,000 to fund the education program initially for 3 years. After this time we plan for the project to be self-sustaining and expanding bee populations, so more education opportunities can happen with Native Bees in the broader community and possibly further afield.

We are definitely open to corporate sponsors and large donations – get in touch to find out more!

Donations of $2500 or more can be earmarked for a specific area of this work. If donating larger amounts (over $2500) please contact us to arrange a transfer of funds.
