Chicago Ideas Week
Meet one of the keystone species that ensures a healthy ecosystem. They’re the bee’s knees.
Beekeeping is a key part of keeping entire ecosystems afloat, and for The Hive, it’s an economic engine for the community and a resource for local beekeepers. Join this sustainably inspired beekeeping supply store for a hands-on inspection of their hives (weather permitting), and learn how they shut them down during the winter. Chicago is a great city for beekeeping, and participants at this Lab will walk away with an in-depth understanding of what goes into making hives that thrive.
*Wear long sleeve shirt and pants. Guests will be in contact with bees, if you have an allergy please refrain from attending.
