The mission of Bees in the D is to educate about the importance of pollinators and the conservation of honey bees. We believe pollinators are critical to sustainability efforts and urban farming. Bees in the D have been building the motor city’s bee highway with pollinator way stations and placing beehives since 2016. The Detroit Bee Highway consists of businesses, residential, and government owned properties that provide safe havens for pollinators to stop for food, water, and shelter as they travel. We’ve grown from placing 6 bee hives in 2016 on local business rooftops in Detroit to managing 102 hives today.
