What We Do
Bees in the D is a trusted group of educators focused on pollinators, specifically honeybees, and provides a model for beekeeping nationally. Through global education and our nationally recognized urban beekeeping model, we increase knowledge around pollinators and are a recognized advocate for honeybees.
Bees in the D’s mission is to create a cooperative effort between residents, schools, organizations, and businesses in the city of Detroit and Southeast Michigan to contribute to both the health of honey bee colonies and the education of their importance to our environment.
In 2022 Bees in the D will be breaking ground on their pollinator education center, revitalizing blighted lots with strolling botanical gardens, and building structure made from up-cycled shipping containers.
