AUBees 2019 raise awareness of Colony Collapse Disorder

​​The Department of Agriculture’s Apiculture class (AGSC 219) hosted Honey Day (July 26) at The Village, Dbayeh. During the event, students sold honey produced by campus raised bees and some honey-based foods. Proceeds of the event will be used to support the beehive at the FAFS Honeybee Lab.

Uniting communities and families, Honey Day harnesses efforts to convey the importance of sustaining bees for the benefit of everyone’s life cycle and the ecosystem. Specifically, the event highlighted the role of these beehives in preserving AUB’s greenery and raised awareness about the cause and effect of Colony Collapse Disorder.
