Bees in the City Program
The genesis of our Bees in the City program was a combination of our new Vancouver customers requesting “local Vancouver” honey and our desire to support our new community.
By keeping our own honeybee colonies in the city year round, we could help the honeybee population, promote a greener city through pollination of our parks & gardens, and produce delicious local Vancouver Urban honey.
Beekeeping in the City
We have colonies at a number of locations in Vancouver, from East Van to Kits to the Main Street area of south Vancouver. We locate from 2 to 10 colonies per location, in yards, parks and gardens. Each location produces its own urban honey variety with distinct colour, flavour and aroma from the local flowers.
Our staff get introduced to the fascinating world of the honeybee!
