PARTNERSHIP HIGHLIGHT

Have you heard the buzz?

420 East Ohio is home to a colony of honeybees! We have partnered with The Roof Crop, a local urban farm, to implement an apiary program on the rooftop of our building. Under the professional stewardship of The Hive Supply, our five beehives are part of over 2,000 hives of honeybees that collectively pollinate the plants, trees, and flowers in Chicago’s parks, gardens, and urban farms. The honey produced is given to residents and sold locally. In addition, educational resident events are hosted throughout the year.
