Beekeeping at MSS Shoreview
We started our beekeeping adventure with just three clients, three staff, and two hives and are continuing to grow!
MSS Shoreview started keeping bees in 2013. After taking classes through the University of Minnesota and being mentored by the University’s Bee Squad, we successfully got through our first year.
Also, within the first year we were able to facilitate most of the people we serve in painting and preparing the hives. As a result, we won a contest through the University of Minnesota for first-time beekeepers and had our hives printed in their annual calendar. In addition to this, we also entered and won 2nd place for a frame of capped honey in the Minnesota State Fair!
Our biggest challenge was to create a safe passage down the hill. We succeeded in collecting enough donations to pave a wheelchair accessible path to our hives in order to open up beekeeping opportunities to all of the people we serve.
Beekeeping is important for the environment as it is relevant to what is happening in our world today, and it’s a chance for the people we serve to do something they didn’t know they could do. For more information about our bees and how to help, please contact Kim Alexander at firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 483-3000.
