The Hive Plants

Let It Grow

Learning about the wild plants that grow here has been a 20+ year process. It is an ever-evolving relationship that continues to deepen.

We have committed to re-wilding our environment. The plants that grow and the species of insects, animals and reptiles that benefit are amazing! Throughout the year, we see rabbits eating leaves, snakes seeking shelter, birds feeding their young, toads enjoying the shade…

We share knowledge about plants through The Hive Experiences. Participants see, feel, touch and taste wild plants. It is truly a multi-sensory experience that can strengthen our connection to the land.

Let It Bee Garden

In August 2017, on the National Day of Honey, The Hive inaugurated the Let It Bee Garden by planting bee-friendly plants in a designated area.

The Let It Bee Garden has gone wild! The garden feeds many local wildlife species and is a source of wild food and medicine for guests who participate in The Hive Experiences. Over 30 varieties of plant medicines are on-site.

We have been building a reservoir of information on the characteristics and benefits of these plants.
