Thank You For Making Some Honey Bees Very Happy

the project

To construct a beehive in the Narrows Botanical Gardens to pollinate the garden, and to educate the general public about beehives and the impact bees have on the environment.

the steps

"1. Ordering a hive. 2. Constructing a hive. 3. Installing bees in the hive. 4. Extract honey from the hive. 5. Continual care & maintenance of the hive."

why we're doing it

Bees pollinate flowers within a three mile radius of the hive. They will assist in pollination of vegetable & flowering fruit trees for humans and increase seed production for birds & animals to eat.


Update: took $90 (total $104) from the total donated and from the project cost to the Queen and worker bees project on 1. $250 for hive 2. $120 for protective garments 4. $40 for smoker & bee-hook for hive 5. $270 for honey extractor 6. $35 for honey holding containers All purchases will be made through the New York City Beekeepers' Association - 57 Broome Street #3E New York, NY 10002
