Island Bee Project was founded by Stacey and Carolina, two latina ladybeekeepers in NYC. Our roots started on Governors Island’s Urban farm in 2016. 
Our mission at Island Bee Project is to inspire and educate everyone we meet about the importance the honeybee's role in our ecosystem and in our lives. We believe that in giving bees a chance gives us all a chance. 
This year we are partnering with The Honeybee Conservancy in creating an Urban Farm Bee Sanctuary on Governors Island in the heart of New York City. Join us for our first citizen science event, BeeBlitz, Saturday June 22nd. Check out our event page for more information HERE. Follow us on instagram for more buzz!
