(Fall 2019)

Miel is a series of beehives that utilize off-cuts. This project was designed with the town, La Yuegada, in mind. The community is located in central Panama, with their main economic resource being non-native pine lumber. The local varieties of bees in Panama are the stingless bee and the african honey bee; two species that are both resilient and distinct pollinators.

Miel would introduce beekeeping as an additional economic resource for the community in addition to bringing in pollinators for local crops and reducing monoculture. Utilizing the off-cuts sourced from the lumber yards in La Yuegada would give the by-products a second life and would introduce a skill that can be applied by both men and women.
