One extremely fascinating and, frankly, unique company in Montreal is called Alveole, a company that puts their focus on beekeeping. More specifically, they encourage beekeeping all around the city. Alveole’s main service is aiding clients in the installation and care of their own apiaries. The benefits of having one of these on the property of your home or business is two fold: Not only do you get a self sufficient source of honey, perfect for a restaurant or eatery, but you also encourage pollination in your local area. Alveole also has a second function: education. It hosts classes on bees and beekeeping, available to anyone, but especially encouraged if you are actually establishing a hive; you must know how to take care of it! With time, Alveole hopes to spread their appreciation of bees across the whole city.
