Featured Student: Ellery Lewis, age 11, is a budding bee keeper. She returned for a second summer in Buzz About Bees camp at the SAGE garden this July. She is completely comfortable working with hives and never shows signs that she’s afraid of being stung.

Ellery’s interest in farming extends beyond the garden. Inspired by the 2009 Cooped Up in Corvallis tour, she helped her parents build a two-story chicken coop (with a playhouse on top!) which she showcased during the 2010 tour.
