Bee Downtown

Honeybees are one of the world's most important agricultural populations. Every third bite of food we eat is thanks to them.


Bee Downtown installs bee hives on corporate campuses and uses them to facilitate year-round employee engagement and leadership development programming.

Bee Downtown Honeybees

A honeybee only makes 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in her whole life. But a hive can generate over 100lbs of honey in a matter of months, so it’s a testament to the power of teamwork.

“Bee Downtown has provided a way for employees to make a difference in their communities and for companies to make a difference in our society.”
