King of Prussia is once again buzzing with excitement, as we welcomed back our King of Prussia District Beehive in Moore Park and added an additional hive to Renaissance Park.
In partnership with the commercial beekeeping company, Alveole, we installed two beehives earlier this month at 1060 First Avenue next to the Linear Park and 2901 Renaissance Boulevard in Renaissance Park. Over the past decade, Alveole has installed hives on rooftops and lawns at over 500 companies, schools and residential properties across North America while teaching the public about bees and biodiversity.
From the second week in May until the beginning of winter, the new hives will grow and produce, reaching up to 50,000 inhabitants at the height of the season, all working to maintain the colony. Over the summer and fall, our Alveole beekeeper, Mo, will be on-site every 3 weeks to inspect the hives and answer questions from the public in Moore Park and Renaissance Park.
King of Prussia District sponsors free workshops and events associated with the hives, including The Bee Social on Wednesday, June 7 from 1-3 PM at 1060 First Ave. next to the Linear Park. Stroll on over to Moore Park’s beehive for the first beekeeper visit of the season and the King of Prussia District team will be on site handing out free Honey Buns. The first 40 people who attend can assemble a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the Society Blooms flower cart to take home!
