The Hives for Humanity Bee Space

We have moved into our new space at 580 Powell: The Hives for Humanity Bee Space!

We are very excited to finally have a home base, where the community can find us even on rainy days when we are not in the gardens and the hives.

The plan is to upgrade┬áthe kitchen so that we can run the space as a cafe: a place of conversation and joy. We’ll host workshops, events, seminars, discussions and celebrations, we’ll feature honey in our coffee and tea, we’ll have a nice reading nook filled with our collection of bee books and magazines, and the place will always smell of beeswax and honey.

We’ve taken a 2yr lease with our landlords and partners, Rain City Housing, and we are very excited to grow the space! We took over on Feb 1st, and spent a whirlwind of a few days working with our community volunteers, gardeners and beekeepers, to clean, patch, sand, paint, clean again, and put up our shop.

We’ve been running a pop-up-honey-shop over the past few days, giving away small jars of honey to all of our visitors, and sampling the flavours of our neighbourhood honeys.
