Collaborators

We encourage you to come to our workshops, get inspired and become a collaborator!

This could entail photographing one of our events, applying what you're learning from our free workshops at home, or it could be that you invent your very own project within the project that propels the city transformation. Think about skills you have or are developing.

You can check out our incoming blog for more inspiration.


Collaborator Stories

Mia films our Free Bee school

"As a writer and filmmaker I'm always on the look out for the weird and interesting, and nothing is more interesting than insects! Hungry for firsthand knowledge, I came across For the Love of Bees through their free beekeeping classes. The class was exactly what I was looking for: expert information coupled with hands-on experience; that they took a holistic approach to the the health and well-being of bees only sealed the deal for me. I was quickly drawn in by the energy and passion of its members and wanted to know more. I approached Sarah with the intention of volunteering my time as a photographer but have since joined her at various events with the intention of documenting the group's growth and spread throughout the city. I have also made a video on Bee School and helped develop an animation about the love story between bees and flowers. I'm looking forward to continue using my skills and expertise to help For the Love of Bees turn Auckland into the safest city in the world for bees." -  Mia Maramara

Gabrielle meeting with Sarah to develop a project as part of her university course requirements

“I first came to a Lunchtime Learning as an activity for my uni sustainability club. From chatting with Sarah I found out about a fascinating project within the project that I later integrated into my coursework. After really enjoying that experience, I chose For The Love of Bees as my AUT Co-operative Education placement. In my time as an intern I’ve been able to try my hand at so many different tasks, just like one would at a startup business. It’s been a brilliant opportunity to develop my design and writing skills and I've been able to really grow as a person. The best part of all is being around such passionate, inspiring people.” - Gabrielle Message, Sustainable Enterprise Student
