Beekeeping in Black Communities
Apiary in the Sky, LLC was founded:
- To address various quality of life concerns residents face on a daily through beekeeping
- To create more representation and support networks for Black beekeepers.
Many urban centers once known as “legacy cities” were booming centers of commerce, only to have been exploited, polluted, and neglected. Many of these cities which are home to predominantly black and brown communities.
We hope to bring awareness to the long history of environmental racism and discrimination in agricultural/green spaces by using the bees to lead the way to a brighter future.
Live to Learn
Live to Love is a grassroots movement that empowers communities to serve as guardians of the Himalayas and its people. The Himalayas are a significant source of defense, agriculture, energy, water and tourism for the nations they occupy. Yet the region faces a number of challenges.
Through this collaboration with the Office of Global Initiatives and Experiential Learning, Live to Love International aims to provide students first-hand experience of working in a non-profit, expand their skills, and understand how global issues are addressed at local levels, as well as the local impact of global challenges.
