Unity Gardens, in an effort to increase the Bee population in South Bend, has created a sweet by product  "Honey From The Hood".  This honey is harvested by Beekeeper Tim Ives and the quality is awesome!!  It has won first place in the regional competition, and with 3 blends going to state, it won 1st, 3rd, and 4th place!!!

What We Need & What You Get

  • We want to send Tim to the National Beekeepers meeting/ competition in New Orleans in January 2014 to represent South Bend and our local Honey from the Hood 
  • If we do not reach our goal donated funds will go to putting up more Bee hives in our community. 
  • Help save the Bees!

The Impact

Honeybees are a valuable food security resource and building diversity in the genetics of the local bee population is one key factor in preventing colony collapse disorder. 

  • We want to make South Bend into "Beetown USA", a Bee friendly city. 
  • Honey from the Hood sales help support Unity Gardens an organization  dedicated to building a healthier community through providing unrestricted access to healthy food through supporting over 50 open vegetable gardens. 
  • Let' put South Bend on the map!!!
