About Us

By transforming vacant lots in the inner city, MO Hives is promoting both thriving bee farms (apiaries) and thriving communities. In addition to emphasizing the importance of the pollinating insect for improving food production yields, MO Hives is working to find safe, sustainable environments for bees to live, feed, and grow.First Hives at Wabash

MO Hives established a low-cost, long-term lease arrangement with Community Builders – KC for six lots that make up their Wabash Avenue apiary site (between 50th and 51st streets on Wabash). These lots have been vacant for nearly a decade and were subject to illegal dumping.

As part of developing a sustainable urban bee farm habitat for the honeybees, MO Hives has begun collecting rainwater from the roof of the Blue Hills Community Center, reusing it for garden beds and honeybees.
