If bees don’t thrive neither do we. Responsible for pollinating more than $20 billion worth of crops annually in the U.S. alone, honey bee health is critical to our survival. The Honey Bee Initiative (HBI) is a program supported by the Costello College of Business at George Mason University and operated by the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Designed to empower communities through sustainable beekeeping, we offer opportunities to engage in scientific research, design art projects, connect with the community, and even study abroad. Partnerships with government, for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations, and community members are vital to the success of the initiative.
Support HBI by purchasing honey or tealight candles. Courtesy of bees in our apiaries they make great gifts!
Partnerships with government, businesses, non-profit organizations, and community members are vital to the success of the initiative. Your donations allow us to expand our applied teaching, research, and local outreach programs to improve bee health, food security, and public bee education.
