Detroit Hives: Urban Bee Farm

Detroit Hives: Urban Bee Farm

Timothy Paule 87 Views http://www.detroithives.com

Here’s the Juice. Our project not only helps eliminate blight but we transform vacant lots into Honey bee conservatories. At this moment they are no apiaries in the state of Michigan that focuses on transforming blight into bee farms. One of the road blocks that we face is funding, we are a start-up nonprofit and we are in need of funding to further our mission.

Impact

Detroit Hives: Urban Bee Farms will help benefit honey bees, allergy sufferers, The city of Detroit, local small businesses, local urban gardens and last but not least, the surrounding community.  There is a drastic decline in the bee population worldwide and our project helps fill that gap. We’re community partners with the Detroit Land Bank, we solve the blight/vacant lot issues in Detroit. Vacant lots contain ragweeds, through immunotherapy our honey bees create honey that heals allergies.

What I Will Do With $5,000

Our project contains a very low overhead and with your generous donation we will be able to purchase more vacant lots in the city of Detroit and transform them into honeybee conservations.
