Faith Macchione is a student at Pascack Valley High School and also a lifelong member of the Girl Scouts. After hearing that her high school was implementing an on-site beekeeping program, she chose to focus her Gold Award project on improving community awareness of the importance of honey bees. Honey bees are critical pollinators, and their decline over the last several years is a significant environmental concern for our shared ecosystem.
We encourage you to visit Faith’s website – “Believe in the Bees” to learn more about the importance of honey bees to global sustainability. We are proud of the way that Faith and other Hillsdale student citizens are dedicated to improving our community and the world through sustainability projects and education.
