City Bees: The Present and Future of Urban Beekeeping

NICOLE RIVERA HARTERY: CHANGING THE FACE OF BEEKEEPING
February 3, 2021

A live panel discussion with some incredible urban beekeepers!

Featuring: — NICOLE RIVERA HARTERY, BEES ON MAIN ST. —

Nicole has had a longtime fascination with bees, and after taking a beekeeping course at Rutgers University she began assisting their Agriculture Department with their hives. As a black woman of Puerto Rican descent, she recognized the importance of representation in beekeeping, and became a honey bee educator to expose young people of color to beekeeping as a professional pursuit. In addition to beekeeping, her company, Bees on Main St., provides a full range of services to Philadelphia and southern New Jersey, including hive installation and consultation, beekeeping training, swarm rescues, and honey harvesting.
