HYOH: Host your own hive? That's how we're referring to a project from Milk & Honey Market in West Philadelphia. The organic market is pairing up with Two Gander Farm for Summer in the City Honey.
Simply put, if you have a roof or backyard in West Philly or Center City, you can host a beehive. Now, before you start freaking out about bee incidents, relax. Trey Flemming of Two Gander Farm will bring the hive to your home, where he'll set it up safely, and he'll visit every three weeks to check up on your little honey-making machine. You'll host the hive from early May to the end of June. It'll be like your own inn of bee guests, and the resulting honey that is harvested will be sold at Milk & Honey Market. Some of the proceeds will benefit The Orchard Project, and all hosts will receive two pints of the sticky stuff. Yum. We can think of all matters of deliciousness that we could wreak with such honey.
