Little Green Bees Get to Work!

Hooray! The Little Green Bees made their debut appearance at a local Cub Scout meeting last Thursday.  We  were finally able to put our great green ideas for kids into action, and we found it so inspiring to hear how these kids are already thinking about recycling and reducing their waste.

But I’m jumping ahead a bit. First, let me explain a little about who we are and what we do. Little Green Bees was started by two Broomfield moms – Julia and Terra – who love their community, love to recycle, and share a passion for thinking of new ways to inspire kids how they can soften their “footprint” on our earth and resources.

Julia has an authentic gift for teaching and inspiring children. Her teaching style is dynamic and enthusiastic, creating a lifelong love of knowledge in kids. She holds a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction for Early Childhood, and has experience teaching at the preschool and elementary levels, as well as teaching English as a second language. She has created lesson plans and complementary manipulatives designed for integrated learning.

Terra is a communicator with a passion for making her community a better place – through green building, green energy, the four R’s, public process, and education. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Writing from Metropolitan State College of Denver, and is currently attending the Denver Community Leadership Forum through the Graduate School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado at Denver.

Little Green Bees is a hands-on program that brings the four R’s to the classroom. Kids are encouraged to think about the products they use and to explore ways they can use less. They create crafts using materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill or the recycling center, and look at ways they can reduce their lunch waste.

This week, we will be visiting five classrooms in Broomfield to celebrate Earth Day! Let us know what you think, or what you are doing for Earth Day.
