MEVO Beekeeping

  • MEVO 200 Campgaw Road Mahwah, NJ, 07430 United States (map)

Help Sustain Bees!

Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society invites you to volunteer for MEVO beekeeping on Sunday, April 28th from 10:00am-4:00pm. 

MEVO (Mahwah Environmental Volunteers Organization, Inc.) is an environmental not-for-profit organization which carries out sustainability projects in Northern New Jersey. MEVO was founded in 2008 by then high school student Eric J. Fuchs-Stengel with the purpose of engaging community members and volunteers in projects that transform suburban communities to be environmentally sustainable. MEVO addresses local environmental concerns ranging from stopping illegal trash dumping throughout the indigenous community of the Ramapough Lunaape Nation, to creating sustainable community farms, and building miles of low-impact hiking trails.

A limit of 20 volunteers will be able to attend! It is a first come, first serve basis! Volunteers will help inspect hives, feeding bees sugar water, splitting hives into NUCS, and harvesting honey.

Volunteers should do the following:

  • Bring a bottle of water (refill is available).

  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothes that can get dirty. It is recommended to bring an extra change of clothes. In addition, MEVO will have gloves provided, but volunteers are welcome to bring their own if they choose to.

  • Below are the Insurance/Accident waivers. Please, download both, fill out and then take a picture/scan them and send to Rafael Zarifa at rafaelzarifa@gmail.com . If you do not have insurance, write None. If you are under 18, a signature of a parent/guardian is required. Volunteers will not be permitted to work without the signed forms.

  • For additional information, please email ptk@bergen.edu and thank you for volunteering!
