PlanetBee: PlanetBee Foundation is on a mission to change the world - one bee and one mind at a time! We are dedicated to creating a green-minded generation by teaching about the importance of bees to foster environmental literacy, conservation, stewardship, and as a pathway to STEM. We present workshops and educational programs virtually and in-person to schools, nonprofits, summer camps, environmental centers, community gardens, and businesses. These programs are granted to schools at no cost to them in our commitment to social justice and an equitable educational experience for all.
