Hume School is getting its own bee hive.
Nelson city council passed a request Monday for an glass observation apiary to be installed on the third floor of Hume. Council approval was necessary because of a city bylaw that prevents apiaries from being built within city limits.
The hive, which is provided by the Bee Awareness Society, is the second council has agreed to allow in a Nelson school. Wildflower School was granted a honey bee hive for one year in 2017, and had an extension approved last year.
City staff said there have been no complaints about the Wildflower hive.
