Summary

Julia Common will talk about her journey of connecting people with bees. As the co-founder and chief beekeeper of Hives for Humanity, Julia gets people excited about bees, what they do for us, and the honey they make in urban hives. Curiosity about what was in her made-in-Vancouver honey connected Julia with UBC geochemists. Partnership between Hives for Humanity and UBC went beyond anyone’s expectations, leading to the creation of UBC’s BeeHIVE research excellence cluster. All this came about because of the humble honey bee.
