Honeybee Update

News From our Busy and Creative COC Honeybees


 

It's suddenly summer in Toronto, and the COC's honeybees were recently returned to the roof of the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts by beekeeper Fred Davis, after being wrapped up well in their winter quarters. Fred reports that the hives did really well over the winter, with the loss of only one hive, which is really good. Five full hives and two smaller ones will be active on the roof under the guidance of Fred and his two assistants, Catherine Jordan and Vivien Wong.

The honey produced by the COC bees isn't just award-winning (see the mobile version here), it's the source of bodily and artistic nourishment:

 

That's all for now. Many thanks to Fred and the hundreds of thousands of bees that collaborate to make all this possible!
