Beekeeping in Black Communities
Apiary in the Sky, LLC was founded (1) to address various quality of life concerns residents face on a daily through beekeeping (2) to create more representation and support networks for Black beekeepers. Many urban centers once known as "legacy cites" were booming centers of commerce, only to have been exploited, polluted, and neglected. Many of these cities which are home to predominantly black and brown communities.
We hope to bring awareness to the long history of environmental racism and discrimination in agricultural/green spaces by using the bees to lead the way to a brighter future.
