Detroit Hives: Saving Bees and Community Building in Urban Detroit

Bees are definitely crucial to the population of our food, and without bees, a lot of our fruits and vegetables won't grow correctly, if not grow at all, and this can be a food shortage.
The Hippie Haven Podcast is back with another episode that will inspire you to live an ethical and eco-friendly life. In this episode, Callee speaks with Nicole Lindsey and Timothy Paule, the co-founders of Detroit Hives, a non-profit organization that aims to transform vacant lots in urban Detroit into bee farms for the conservation of honeybees. Lindsey and Paule share their journey of how they got into beekeeping and started Detroit Hives, which has now become a vital part of the local community.
The podcast episode dives deep into the importance of bees in our environment and food system. Lindsey and Paule emphasize how bees are crucial for the population of our food, and without them, our fruits and vegetables won't grow correctly, if not grow at all, leading to a food shortage. The duo also highlights the medicinal properties of honey and how it can regulate blood sugar levels for diabetics.
In addition to the conservation of honeybees, Detroit Hives has also become a platform for community building in urban Detroit. The organization has established a learning center where they educate the community and local businesses on the importance of cross-pollination. They also provide a low-cost, sustainable project for children and youth to manage vacant lots and create positive change in their community. Lindsey and Paule share their experience of introducing young girls to beekeeping and how it eliminates their fear of bugs and honeybees, making them feel empowered and connected to the environment.
The episode also sheds light on the sustainability of urban beekeeping and how vacant lots in Detroit are the perfect location for urban apiaries. The lots have many native plants and wildflowers that attract bees, and no one is spraying any pesticides on them. Lindsey and Paule also discuss the challenges of urban beekeeping, such as dealing with angry bees and structures in homes with wasps and yellow jackets.
The episode ends with a discussion on how to purchase local honey and tell if it's pure or diluted down. Lindsey and Paule share their Five-Year goal of revitalizing properties within the city of Detroit and establishing a network of hives located within the metro Detroit area.
In summary, this episode of the Hippie Haven Podcast is inspiring, empowering, informative, and hopeful. It highlights the importance of conservation of honeybees and community building in urban areas. It is a must-listen for anyone interested in ethical and eco-friendly living.
