Bike-a-Bee: expanding urban farming

After taking a beekeeping class at Chicago’s Honey Co-op, Jana Kinsman launched Bike-a-Bee.

Hives are set up around the city, and Kinsman travels to and fro with all of her beekeeper equipment on a Bullitt cargo bike.

Due to last summer’s drought, Bike-a-bee produced no honey, but a Kickstarter program raised enough money for the non-profit to expand.

In addition to tending to the hives, Kinsman teaches beekeeping at local schools and programs.
