FINDLAY, OH (WTOL) -The Owens Community College Findlay campus is buzzing, as their biology department is getting some help with their community garden.

Next to the Owens Community garden in Findlay sit five bee hives purchased by the Owens faculty association.

The hope is that the bees can not only help pollinate the community garden, but can be used as an additional teaching tool for students.

“Any students that are taking our courses, or even if they’re not taking a biology course, and they want to learn they can come out and seek us out, and we’ll be happy to bring them out and teach them about what we’re learning and all of the stuff we have going on here,” said Bob Connour, Professor of Biology at Owens Community College
