From rooftops to waterfronts, Toronto’s downtown beehives produce delicious honey and link a community of apiarists dedicated to protecting bee colonies and their many outputs – environmental as well as artistic. The tour begins with Penelope Stewart’s beeswax installation Vanitas at the Koffler Gallery, and travels east by bicycle to the Portlands Energy Centre beehives for a demonstration by beekeeper Brian Hamlin and a sampling of local honeys by sunset.
