the project

With your support, Detroit Hives will expand its Brightmoor Pollinator Habitat to create a community bee museum.  This is a multiphase project where we will transform an abadoned home next door to our garden site, into Detroit's first bee museum.  The bee museum will support and highlight local and world-renowed bee-themed artist.
