    About the Speaker

    The idea for Detroit Hives was sparked in the winter of 2016 when Timothy Paule discovered that local raw honey was able to cure a cold that no other remedy had. After learning about the medicinal properties of honey and seeing how it was able to provide his immune system the boost it needed, he and partner Nicole Lindsey became fascinated with bees. The couple learned as much as they could, enrolling in local beekeeping classes over the next few months. Both being proud Detroit natives, they recognized the abandoned lots in the city could serve a greater purpose and combined their new knowledge with a need in the community. They bought their first lot in 2017, started their first urban bee farm, and Detroit Hives was born. They’ve generated buzz with their work, expanding to other lots, multiplying their number of hives and continuing to build their colony ever since. Our founders created Detroit Hives with the purpose to bring diversity and cognizance to bee awareness and rebuilding inner-city communities introducing Detroit as the place to “BEE”.
