Honeybees are so important to me. I lead the Local Honey Project. I keep bees at home. I advocate for honeybees. When I found out (the hard way) that Ypsilanti did not allow hives in the city, I worked hard to change that law. I’m proud to say, the vote to change it was unanimous!
Now my friends from the Local Honey Project are really raising the bar. Not only is Ypsilanti now a Bee City USA thanks to the leadership of Jamie Berlin, but also she’s founded the Festival of the Honeybee in our fair city. It starts this coming Friday night!
There’s lots more beside this AMAZING list of events kicking off the FOHB. On Sunday morning beginning at 10:30 am (at the Corner Brewery, aka ABC Microbrewery), there will be a bike tour of urban hives. From 1pm til 5pm, I’ll be offering my Bee+ wares at the Bee Bazaar. Stop by and see me! We can toast honeybees and all they do with the special Local Honey Beer that Corner Brewery will be crafting for the occasion.
