Beekeeping has served as an important art and science throughout human history; it has been around for centuries. In modern life, beekeeping continues to fascinate many across the globe. As a form of agriculture, bees provide a source of food, medicine, and other commodities while bringing income to the most devoted. Urban beekeeping is currently booming and Begawan realises that children need to experience such an activity to heighten the awareness of the importance of plant pollination in our lives.

On 23 February 2022, Eco Warriors visited an apiary located in West Selemadeg, Tabanan. This program aims to enrich the students’ insight and knowledge about beekeeping. The students were guided by the Learning Centre’s facilitators and two beekeepers.

The beekeepers gave the students a chance to see the process of collecting honey from the bee hive frame. Knowing how it is done, the students safely took part in collecting more honey by themselves then tasted the honey together with the facilitators. The students were happy to taste the sweet rewards of their hard work.

Throughout this program, students also learnt the importance of the bees’ role in pollination. Since the apiary’s location was in the middle of a forest, students had a firsthand look at how the bees collect their honey in nature, and how bees communicate with each other. Even though students had an initial fear of bees, they were fascinated with bees and slowly able to feel that bees are their friends.

The excitement during this program was not only perceived by the students, but also the facilitators. Begawan’s program has implemented the “Learning by Doing” experience once again! We also want to express our deep gratitude to Mr. Chakra and Mr. Panca for having us in their apiary.

Pengalaman Beternak Lebah – Sehari di Peternakan Lebah

Oleh: Devi Devanthi

Peternakan lebah telah menjadi seni dan ilmu penting sepanjang sejarah manusia; telah ada selama berabad-abad. Dalam kehidupan modern, peternakan lebah terus mempesona banyak orang di seluruh dunia. Sebagai bentuk pertanian, ia berfungsi sebagai sumber makanan, obat-obatan, dan memberi kita komoditas lain sambil membawa pendapatan bagi yang sabar. Peternakan lebah perkotaan saat ini sedang booming dan Begawan menyadari bahwa anak-anak perlu mengalami kegiatan seperti itu untuk meningkatkan kesadaran pentingnya penyerbuk (pollinators) dalam kehidupan kita.

Pada tanggal 23 Februari 2022, Pejuang Lingkungan mengunjungi sebuah peternakan lebah yang terletak di Selemadeg Barat, Tabanan. Program ini bertujuan untuk memperkaya wawasan dan pengetahuan siswa tentang peternakan lebah. Para siswa dibimbing oleh fasilitator Pusat Belajar dan dua peternak lebah.

Para peternak lebah memberikan kesempatan kepada siswa untuk melihat proses pengambilan madu dari kerangka sarang lebah. Mengetahui cara melakukannya, siswa dengan aman mengambil bagian dalam mengumpulkan madu sendiri kemudian mencicipi madu bersama dengan fasilitator. Para siswa pun senang merasakan hasil manis dari kerja keras mereka.

Melalui program ini, siswa juga belajar pentingnya peran lebah dalam penyerbukan. Karena lokasi peternakan lebah berada di tengah hutan, siswa dapat melihat secara langsung bagaimana lebah mengumpulkan madu di alam, dan bagaimana lebah berkomunikasi satu sama lain. Meskipun siswa memiliki rasa takut terhadap lebah, mereka terpesona dengan lebah dan perlahan-lahan dapat merasakan bahwa lebah adalah teman mereka.

Kemeriahan selama program ini tidak hanya dirasakan oleh siswa, tetapi juga para fasilitator. Program Begawan telah menerapkan pengalaman “Belajar sambil Melakukan”! Kami ingin mengucapkan terima kasih yang mendalam kepada Bapak Chakra dan Bapak Panca karena telah menempatkan kami di peternakan lebah mereka.
