A Honey of a Lesson

On Monday, October 17, Beekeeper David Cromwell introduced seniors in the "Literature of Food" course to McDonogh’s resident hives. After the bees were smoked out, students examined the honeycombs and learned the importance of bees in an agricultural economy. "This is a great lesson because we are so removed from the sources of our food," said English teacher Cynthia Cox. Earlier this month, several students also helped harvest honey. The hives are an important part of The McDonogh Roots Program.
