Slovenian Embassy in Washington DC donates five AŽ hives to Ms. Ashely Thomas from Bridge 2 Sports for a project "Accessible beekeeping for wheelchair-bound veterans" in Durham, North Carolina. The aim of the project is to build on the Slovenian experience beekeeping infrastructure that will be user friendly for retired service members, who are using wheelchairs. AŽ hives offer much easier side access to the honeycomb compared to Langstroth hives, which open from the top. AŽ hives are also more sustainable as they have way longer shelf life. We are looking forward to the start of the project that will help veterans with their reintegration programs.
