Installation Day 2018

We are happy to announce that on Sunday, April 8th, GW’s rooftop apiary gained some new residents! With the help of new lab members and volunteers, we managed to successfully install six new hives. Seeing everyone work together really made us buzz with excitement for this summer!

A special thanks to Ken, from Founding Farmers, for photographing the event (all the following photos are his).

We are looking forward to another great beekeeping season with our newest beekeepers and research team. Dr. Doebel, my fellow beekeepers, and I ended our day with a celebratory trip across the street at Founding Farmers. We ordered tea, and were served with some beautiful silverware with a bee and date on it, and we asked our server what it signified. Little did we expect that the date and bee signified when we started beekeeping with Founding Farmers! We sat, with grins on our faces, as our server explained Founding Farmer’s Partnership with GWBuzz apiary!

To infinity and Bee-Yond,
