Host A Hive

Do you have land that would be perfect for honeybees but don’t really want to be a beekeeper?  You can be a bee-haver – someone who has bees on their property that a beekeeper owns and tends.  If you would like to discuss putting bee hives on your property with a beekeeper please leave a comment below.  Please include the general location and short description of your property.

    We would love to host bees on the small parcel of land next to our house. We are located in Ginter Park in the city.

    Unfortunately I haven’t had good luck finding a class that both works with my schedule and has open slots for hte spring, but I am VERY interested in fostering a bee hive in my backyard in the Fan. Pretty soon I am going to fence it off, and start planting pollinator-friendly plants back there. Would be great to get some pollinators in there for me to learn from. – Andrew Gray

    Hi, my husband just saw a tv program about hive-hosting and we would like to talk with you about hosting a hive, if our property is amenable. We live on .5 acres off Brook about 5 minutes from Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens

    I am interested in hosting hives. My family and I plant a large garden yearly, and like clockwork have pollination issues with vegetables due to the lack of honey bees in the area. The property is approximately 2 acres with a fenced in section located adjacent to rt288 and rt10. would love to learn by hosting first.

    Hi I’d be interested in hosting a hive! I live in southern Highland Park. My backyard is mostly dappled shade under a willow oak and an American elm. I have some flowering plants and shrubs in the front and the back garden and would be amenable to planting more as recommended by a bee keeper. I’ve been trying to plant more natives, with mixed success.

    Hello I live in Tuckahoe and have a good sized lot with a shady backyard. I’m interested in hosting a beehive with the intention of becoming a beekeeper later on.
