A community-based initiative dedicated to the sustainable management of bees and beehives in urban areas.
Providing local bee stock, cedar topbar hives, educational opportunities, and support with natural beekeeping.
We supply Warre hives (widely referred to as "The People's Hive") and encourage Warre hive
beekeeping for healthy, natural beekeeping.
All our hives are hand-made in Vancouver, BC using Western Red Cedar grown and harvested here in our Pacific Northwest. The hives are built
to industry standards using proper bee space and contain modified removable top bars to comply with local beekeeping laws. Fully assembled,
each hive comes complete and ready to house your bees!
