Rooftop Bee Colony

Whole Foods Market is passionate about restoring wildflower habitats, protecting pollinators, and mobilizing our communities to make a difference. With that mission in mind, Whole Foods Market Minnetonka has partnered with the University of Minnesota Bee Squad, to maintain a colony of bees on the rooftop of our store facility.

The bees have a foraging radius of about 2.5 miles and travel about that far on a daily basis searching for pollen. To find out what you can do to protect our local pollinators, check out the pollinator section of our website:
