From rooftops to waterfronts, Toronto’s downtown beehives produce delicious honey and link a community of apiarists dedicated to protecting bee colonies and their many outputs – environmental as well as artistic. The tour begins with an artist-led tour with Penelope Stewart through her immersive beeswax installation Vanitas at the Koffler Gallery, then travels east by bicycle – lead by William Huffman – to the Portlands Energy Centre beehives for a demonstration by beekeeper Brian Hamlin and a sampling of local honeys by sunset.
