Green Roofs + Beehives: Innovations in Living Roofs
The benefits of green roofs are well established. They reduce the urban heat island effect, reduce stormwater runoff and aid in energy conservation. When you add beehives to pollinate a green roof installation, these living roofs do even more. Together they promote wellness and build community for tenants, cities, and the environment.
Register for this webinar to learn how developers, designers and building owners can put their urban rooftops to optimal use as part of their wider sustainability plans.
CEO Noah Wilson-Rich Speaks About Urban Beekeeping on the TED Stage
"Humans think about our health in a prospective way. Why don't we think about honeybees in the same way?"
We depend on bees to pollinate our crops yet the cost of these fruits and vegetables continues to rise as bees rapidly and mysteriously disappear. Noah Wilson-Rich, founder of Boston's Best Bees Company, teaches us how urban beekeeping just might save a city and a species in this TEDPrize City 2.0 talk.
Big Data, Little Bees: How NASA data reveals where pollinators thrive and why
Each backyard beehive and rooftop apiary is part of a vast network of tiny buzzing barometers. Together, they help scientists study the local and global environment. How? It’s all about the data. In this webinar, we zero in on the data we get from thousands of our clients’ beehives and zoom out to global maps of bee activity and climate conditions from NASA satellites.
Noah Wilson-Rich, Ph.D., Founding Partner and Chief Scientific Officer of The Best Bees Company, and Darcy Gray, Fellow with the NASA DEVELOP Program, bring this data together to show a fascinating picture of bees on Earth.
How to Plant for Pollinators: Planning a Biodiverse Garden
Planting pollinator habitats at home can bring beauty, sustainability, and rich new connections to nature – whether you start with a small patch or rolling acres. And connecting your garden property landscape to a wider ecosystem through pollinator gardens lets you make an outsized impact on biodiversity. But there are important do’s and don’ts to make it a success!
Discover the best ways to integrate pollinator gardens and docile honey beehives into a home landscape.
Beehives Are Good For Business: How To Say Yes To Honey Beehives On Your Property
A honey beehive program can accelerate your sustainability initiatives and contribute to a green future, especially if you have data-yielding beehives!
Learn from Chief Scientific Officer Noah Wilson-Rich why building owners, developers, and managers have partnered with The Best Bees Company over the last 10 years to install and manage honey beehives on their properties across the U.S. and how a scientifically-managed beehive program is a surprisingly efficient investment.

How You Can Help Save the Bees, One Hive at a Time: TEDxProvincetown
After analyzing HoneyDNA test results from 84 million bees, we know urban habitats are more bee-friendly than suburban and rural areas. Noah Wilson-Rich, our Chief Science Officer, presented the findings to the TEDxProvincetown audience in 2018.
