The garden on 4th Street now has 5 bee hives! The bees are doing very well. They travel up to 5 miles in search of pollen - so if you are in the Springfield area and see bees in your flower garden, they maybe Sustainable Springfield's bees. Our bees are not aggressive, unless provoked of course.
We intend to grow the number of hives in the urban core and will be splitting the hives each spring. If you are interested in learning more about the bees, participating in inspecting the hives and or housing a hive, please contact us.
If you would like to donate to our bee project, please donate here:
This is the bee garden we planted through donations. All of the plants are attractive to honey bees and bloom at different times of the year. We have zinnias, sunflowers, powder puffs, oakleaf hydrangeas, turks caps, white crepe myrtle, and beauty berry.
