Helping Bees! Fund a new apiary
We did it
On 3rd March 2018 we successfully raised £10 with 1 supporters in 28 days

To open a new semi-urban apiary to help honey bee population and be used as an educational site to encourage others.

Part One

Find a great site of the little guys that's well protected and has plenty of food for them,  then buy new hives this avoids disease giving the little guys a good start in life. 

Part Two

Introduce bees from neighboring trusted beekeepers with high quality queens to ensure strong colonies, only the best will do. 

Part Three 

Now it's their turn, the established hives will pollinate Local crops and gardens, while contributing to strong population of honey bees in the area. 

When they've settled in the site will be used for free education to future beekeepers. Perfect for those who want to lean but don't have the space or funding  to do it themselves. 

Spare honey will be collected, but never to the detriment of the colonies. All funds from the sale of which will be reinvested into the project to help with upkeep and expansion.
