Honey Bee Apiary

Honey Bee Apiary ? Auto West BMW

An apiary is a place where bees are kept in order to help pollinate local vegetation and produce honey. Built to compliment our roof top gardens, our honeybee apiary is also part of study by Dr. Katherine Dunster of York University to study CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) and to see how an urban environment affects the bees' natural nesting behaviour.
