I am pleased to share with you my conversations with Mike Pelley, famously known as Merman Mike, and Timothy Paule, and Nicole Lindsey of the Detroit Hives. Merman Mike is a scuba diver who retrieves valuables, searches for treasures, and takes out trash as his passion. Timothy and Nicole founded Detroit Hives to turn vacant lots in Detroit into urban bee farms. Their stories are real-life evidence that the Conspiracy of Goodness we have long been promoting is found everywhere, from underwater to the urban areas.

Let’s tune in and learn how we can replicate their passion!

Tweetable Quotes:

“For me, I’m having fun any time my head goes under the water. I’m having an absolute blast. So, on my mind, if I can make somebody else’s day, week, month, or year by being able to return something while I’m down there, it’s a win-win for everybody.” - Mike Pelley

“The block club pretty much is like a way to sustain the community with ideas, with projects, with things you wanna see changed or things you wanna address to better your community.” - Timothy Paule
