Beekeeping Education Enthusiast Society (B.E.E.S.) (B.E.E.S.)

We are a group of students and community members committed to educating ourselves and others about beekeeping, pollinators, and the production of local honey. We provide a rare space within the City of Toronto where anyone can participate and learn more about the art of beekeeping within the urban context. As per our Constitution:

"It is the purpose of U of T BEES to allow students an opportunity to learn about the age old tradition of beekeeping and the role that bees play in sustaining a healthy ecosystem. We seek to highlight the importance of urban beekeeping as a means of encouraging the survival of pollinators responsible for the existence of many plants. Honeybees are a keystone species, and are crucial to the maintenance of a healthy global ecosystem. U of T BEES provides a unique opportunity for students to connect with nature and the green city, learn about the process of urban beekeeping and hive maintenance, and participate in local sustainable practices."

BEE warned: our enthusiasm for our little friends is extremely contagious!
