Urban Beekeeping Initiative in Sault Ste. Marie

Abstract: 

This research pilot began in the winter of 2014 to investigate urban beekeeping in the context of Sault Ste. Marie.  The pilot project set out to assess the feasibility of an established, successful, working apiary within the city by fostering positive community relations; continual operation and/or expansion of bee colonies in the community; gathering a baseline of public perception of urban beekeeping; and the ability of public outreach and education in addressing community perceptions.
