The bees have arrived!
Yorkdale is thrilled to announce the introduction to our very own rooftop beehive! As part of a two-year program, Yorkdale has adopted two hives from urban bee keeping company, Avéole, that will live on the Yorkdale rooftop to support and help grow the bee population. Initially the hives house 5,000 bees each, which will grow to 50,000 by the end of the summer! The bees will travel up to 5km, contributing to the greening in the Yorkdale neighbourhood and local gardens.
We are always looking for ways to further enrich our communities and give back locally, and these bees are the best way to do so. We can’t wait to see the unbee-lievable results these amazing creatures will produce for us! Stay tuned for more updates!
