Let’s take a moment and lend our senses to Brian Peterson-Roest as he spotlights the world of beekeeping in the big city.
Five years ago Peterson-Roest founded the nonprofit Bees in the D to bring people together around a shared appreciation for pollinators in Detroit. In an otherwise vast cityscape, Peterson-Roest and his team have brought a little bit of nature, and delicious honey, to the people of Detroit through their beekeeping work.
Peterson-Roest takes us on a sensory journey into a beehive, showing us that it is possible to live in tandem with these crucial creatures, and have a bit of fun while doing so.
This episode is part of the A Listen into Landscape project, a series of audio postcards spotlighting peace, place, and connection to landscape from the perspective of those working in nature.
