Nurture and Nature: On Inspiration and Bees


Join Alice Hinman, founder, natural beekeeper and horticulturist for the Raleigh-based nonprofit, Apiopolis Urban Bee Sanctuary for lessons about life, courage and the fascinating world of honeybees.


Alice is the founder, executive director and beekeeper for Apiopolis, a non-profit urban bee sanctuary based in Raleigh. Alice is devoted to learning how to best care for her fascinating friends by studying their biology, habits and natural inclinations to support the well being of the entire colony.


At Apiopolis, she works holistically to restore honeybees to health by focusing on developing locally resilient and diverse genetics, supportive shelters, a healthy and beautiful environment with abundant nutritional resources and promoting beecentric stewardship practices that put the needs and wisdom of the bees first. She tends honeybee colonies at small farms, community gardens, on the rooftops of local businesses, in backyards and in the trees.


Alice has been a natural beekeeper for ten years and earned a certificate in Sustainable Biodynamic Beekeeping from her studies with Gunther Hauk of Spikenard Farm Honeybee Sanctuary. Alice has a certificate in Landscape Design from The Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, NY, a B.S. degree in Horticulture Science from North Carolina State University and studied landscape architecture at NCSU’s College of Design.
