THANK YOU FOR HELPING US ADD EVEN MORE SWEETNESS TO HIGHBANKS

Our Honey Story

The beehives came to Highbanks in the Spring of 2017, and our amazing volunteer Kelly got to work tending to our new residents. Just as we’ve worked hard to create a safe and beautiful home for our residents, Kelly created a home for tens of thousands of honeybees whose mission was supported by the fruits and flowers of the neighbourhood. But good things take time, and in the first year there was no honey to harvest. In 2018 however, the Highbanks beehives have produced almost 80 pounds of honey for harvest! It’s only with the help and support of our wonderful donors and volunteers that we and the bees have been able to create so much sweetness at Highbanks, both in the form of support for our incredible residents and the most delicious honey.

Highbanks gives hope to these young families by providing:

SAFE & AFFORDABLE RESIDENCES

ACCESS TO EDUCATION & COMMUNITY RESOURCES

PARENTING SUPPORT & ENCOURAGEMENT

PEER SUPPORT
