Noah Wilson-Rich, Ph.D.

Urban Beekeeping

Curator’s Pick: “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.
