The Hive School – Cabrera, Dominican Republic
Located in Cabrera, in the Dominican Republic, the Hive School is an alternative to school and provides an education for Dominican and International families with its curriculum based around the UN sustainable development goals. Each six-week session looks at a new SDG and children learn how to tackle big ideas and consider essential questions, how to design and execute a plan and how to work together to achieve a shared goal. The founder states that the main thing they learn is that they are powerful and they can act now.
A small grant was awarded to support the design, build and maintenance of a vegetable garden where the school will work with the local community to produce food for the Hive kitchen and train the local community about regenerative practice.
The project will enable the creation of balanced, nutritious meals in its own kitchen and provide learning opportunities from propagating seeds to growing, cooking, marketing and selling produce.
