You Are In Good Company! Teachers have said:

Livin Farms brought a fresh perspective into our classrooms with their engaging Sustainability Workshops. Our S3 students & teachers really enjoyed the hands-on time with the Hive Explorer, which was a new STEM experience that had never been done before.

Students enjoyed the interactive quiz session, followed by the debate on mealworms as environmental protein alternative and food waste management solution.

Everyone could experience hands on the power of the tiny mealworms against climate change.

Our school-wide project with the Hive was a great success! It was an opportunity for teachers to teach Science in a unique way and have students in contact with Animals & Nature. We also felt it was not a lot of work to add-on to our school curriculum in Quebec!
