The Beez Kneez Honey House is now open in the Seward neighborhood, complete with a cycle-powered honey extractor and live honeybees.

The community center at 2204 Minnehaha Ave. is designed to support urban beekeepers, funded by a successful $40,000 Kickstarter campaign. People can use the center to rent honey extraction and bottling services.

The Beez Kneez originally planned to open at 3957 42nd Ave. S., but decided to pull out of the location, citing legal obstacles.

The new location on Minnehaha is located around the corner from Growing Lots Urban Farm and SPOKES, a center that plans community bike rides and teaches classes on how to bike in traffic.

An open house on Aug. 20 from 4-7 p.m. will feature chai from Verdant Tea, brats and other food from local farmers, and music by DJ Tanzende Zahnstocher (German for Dancing Toothpick).
