Dahlem Center beekeeping educator John Haynes say raising bees in an urban environment is beneficial especially with the bee population dropping.

“By that I mean bees, native bees, butterflies, bumblebees and even wild honey bees that live in the woods and even in the trees in the city,” Haynes said. “As those numbers decrease, as beekeepers, we can raise really healthy and sustainable beehives of honey bees to help offset that pollination deficit that’s being created and, in the process, of course, we’re benefiting trees, flowers, fruits and vegetables.”

And, then there’s the honey.

“Honey which is raw and unfiltered, which you can get locally but it’s different than a national distributor brand, is really good, has a lot of essential vitamins and minerals and amino acids for people. There’s good environmental benefits but there’s also good personal benefits to be gained from increased pollination,” Haynes said.
