This year, our Hazel Street Garden partnered with The Honey Bee Project. The Honey Bee Project is a Beekeepers in Residence program involving youth in 4-month-long therapeutic beekeeping program. It provides hands on training on beekeeping and relevant job skills, while encouraging development of body and emotional awareness, regulation strategies, and mindfulness practices. Each participant graduates with an increased capacity for relationship building, and an increased sense of self efficacy and empowerment.
