On Thursday’s Lunch & Learns, hear presentations from – and help empower – local small businesses! For weekly events, bring your own lunch or buy from one of the food trucks that come to our doors. Group walks, bike rides or runs through the beautiful, wooded trails of Ryan Park (just steps from The Hive), are great ways to shed the day’s work or discuss new projects and ideas.

The Hive is a shared working environment and as such we have to respect the privacy of other members. A list of what’s acceptable and what isn’t can be seen here. We also provide an anonymous form to submit complaints, so they can be dealt with fairly and quickly.

Acceptable Use

Food Trucks

Get your grub on! The Hive has food trucks like Eddies BBQ, Presto StrangeO coffee and others regularly visiting the waterfall area. In an effort to increase the community vibe here we’ve arranged to have these trucks come serve our colony as well as local area businesses.

The food trucks serve The Hive members as well as other appreciative local businesses.
