Honey Bee Initiative


    George Mason University’s Honey Bee Initiative (HBI) works on honey bee sustainability by providing an innovative education, conducting collaborative research, and establishing community partnerships in our local Northern Virginia region. (HBI) has developed a multi-disciplinary, innovative, and entrepreneurial approach to honey bee sustainability.
In 2013, Mason launched the initiative with one apiary (a community of hives) on campus and embarked on education, research, and public-private partnerships with both a domestic and global focus. Today, with more than 60 domestic hives, 300 hives in Colombia and Peru, and an established research program and curriculum, we are leveraging the resources of the College of Science and School of Business to enhance our
impact and expand our public-private partnerships. Find out more about how Hidden Creek Farm is working with George Mason on the Honey Bee Initiative here:
