MINNEAPOLIS - The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is an amazing place to soak in the worldwide collection of art but this summer it has also been a great place to gather nectar!
The Bee Squad from the University of Minnesota landed at MIA this past spring and the hives on the roof are very busy and very productive.
"Beekeeping is no longer only a rural pastime. Honey bees can be kept in a variety of places-from back yards to balconies to rooftops. Yes, honey bees can live and thrive within city limits, and we can help. The Bee Squad is committed to bringing back a bee-friendly world by educating, training and assisting people engaged in helping bees thrive. By promoting awareness about the critical contribution of pollinators to nutritious foods and a green environment, the Bee Squad helps people make choices that are good for the bees and ultimately good for us all."
For more info on how you can be a part of the Bee Squad, check out the link above. There are many ways to help and get involved.
The honey will be sold this fall at MIA and you have to get in there and get yourself a jar. It is amazing.
