This year studioTLA will be doing our part to help pollinate the neighbourhood by installing a beehive in #tlameadow! Come June, our bees will already be collecting nectar that will become a special studioTLA honey that will be harvested later this summer. 

One third of our food supply relies on their pollination, and with bee populations in decline all over the world, we want to do our part to help create awareness about their essential role in the environment.

We’ll be collaborating with Alvéole, an Urban Beekeeping Company that is focused on merging beekeeping, education and community. Alvéole is a social enterprise that is determined to create awareness, and change the urban landscape of our cities, one hive at a time.

In September, our tla honey will be harvested, jarred and given back to us. We are looking forward to tasting and sharing the honey of the neighbourhood of North York!! Since one beehive can produce an average of 10 to 15 kilos of honey each year, there will be lots to go around!
