An urban beehive is an unparalleled educational tool as well as a promoter of important attitude changes with respect to the environment. And, it can have a positive impact on the surrounding ecosystem! That’s why Community Natural Foods now have beehives at each of our store locations!
The installation of a hive in an urban environment requires minimal resources, but brings a flood of direct and indirect benefits, notably social and ecological. The practice brings together city dwellers, allows the repurposing of an unused space, highlights a variety of issues related to the environment, industrial agriculture, pollination and greening while producing local, artisanal honey.
