Planet Bee will work with your company to house a beehive on your corporate campus or rooftop!
This two-year apprenticeship program includes beehive installation, bee basics lessons for employees, and opportunities for everyone to suit up, open the hive, and investigate frames of bees with our trained educators. We'll even lead a honey-spinning in the fall, one of the sweetest rewards to working with honey bees. Our beekeepers will maintain the hive for the duration of the two-year program, with the opportunity for employees to shadow and learn the trade, so employees can take full ownership of the colony once the program is over.
One beehive can house up to 60,000 bees, which will greatly increase pollination services and habitat vitality in your local area. Not to mention, you will create widespread awareness of the importance of honey bees both within the company and outside of it.
Our current Adopt-A-Hive partners include, Google, SAP, and Sutro Tower, Inc.
In 2012, the Environmental Defense Fund recommended our Adopt-A-Hive Program in their summer issue.
Please see our Beekeeping 101 page to quickly learn the basics of what it’s like to care for a beehive.
