Since 2016, École Rudolf Steiner de Montréal has been home to a thriving hive of bees that live on the school grounds, that pollinate our trees and flowers and give us jars full of pur, light honey. But above all that, they are our children's teachers. Bees create the geometrical patterns that inspire their drawings, they are models of collaborative work and we rely on them to pollinate our crops.
To celebrate Waldorf 100 in 2019, Waldorf schools world-wide took on the comitment of caring for a bee hive. With the support of Alvéole, an Montreal urban apiculture business co-founded by a Waldorf graduate, the ERSM school community plans to continue caring for our bees, and for the bees to continue to teach us. To do so, we need financial support to help cover the costs of the monthly visits from bee keepers, for the workshops that introduce our students to the wonder of bees and for the extraction and bottling of the honey, whose composing elements give us a fascinating portrait of the floral diversity that surrounds our school.
Thank you for supporting our bee-teachers!
