Sweet Life Hive Hosting
We are now accepting Hive Hosting requests for 2016.
Would you like to help off-set the precipitous decline in local pollinators by helping to establish additional honeybee colonies?
Would you like honey bee hives in your yard, but don't have the time or the desire to care for them?
Would you like to be part of the solution by providing pollinators for the plants in your yard and neighborhood?
If you would like to help, but are not sure if beekeeping on your own is right for you, consider participating in our Hive Hosting program!
The Sweet Life Hive Hosting program places beehives in Jackson Hole and Teton County backyards and ranches. (Most of the County is eligible, with a few exceptions due to geographic limitations and high bear densities).
How Hive Hosting works:
Apply with us to have your yard accepted as being suitable for the Hive Hosting program.
Sweet Life will place one or two hives on your property.
