Inside the Hive

A growing co-op shows that saving bees can be good for business.

You’ll find the members of The Chicago Honey Co-op in the backyards and on the rooftops of the third-largest city in America, throwing on veils and heavy-duty gloves in order to get up close and personal with a swarm of stinging insects. The co-op, an urban beekeeping initiative founded in 2004, will even teach you how to wrangle your own bee colony, if you’re up for it.
