Healthy communities connected through the culture of the hive.

About

Vision: 

Healthy communities connected through the culture of the hive.

Mission: 

We work to create transformative opportunities for people and pollinators.  Through mentorship based programming we create flexible opportunities for people to engage in the therapeutic culture that surrounds the hive; we foster connectivity to nature and to each other; we participate in local sustainable economies; we support at-risk populations of people and pollinators, and we do so with respect and joy. We create a supportive and connected network, and offer opportunity for building self-worth and community pride, so that all may thrive. We connect people to nature, to community and to themselves, and we do it through the bees.

Values: 

  • Respect: We work with respect for each other, for our partners and participants, and for the bees; we offer dignity, equality and opportunity to all.
  • Self-Worth: We foster self-worth in individuals, creating respite amidst chaos, and building pride through meaningful experience, ownership and connectivity.
  • Inclusivity: Our community is built on diversity and inclusion. We collaborate openly, work in teams, and listen to every voice. Everyone is welcome, always.
  • Education: We engage, inform and inspire people to connect with nature, with themselves and with their community; advocating for pollinators and their habitats.
  • Trust: We build relationships on honesty and accountability, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of everyone we work with.
  • Opportunity: We find and create spaces that provide opportunities for people, plants and bees to grow and thrive. We give people a reason to lift their heads up; we create hope where there was none before.
