The aim of this project is to boost honey bee populations within the urban environment increasing the pollination in urban rural margins

by Elemental Apiarist in Southampton, United Kingdom

With several years of working in Arboriculture and Horticulture; now transitioning into natural conservation through structured interventions; our proposition is to aid honey bee populations through the utilization of urban roof tops and forgotten car park corners. 

In urban environments honey bee colonies can gather from the urban and rural belts covering weed rich rail works, grass strong playing fields or fertile flood plains.

By introduction new healthy colonies this will help to  increase our native wild honey bees the Dark European Honey bee 'Apis Mellifera Mellifera'. 

Therefore, with the funds raised will allow investment in low maintenance light weight transferable poly hives.

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” – Albert Einstein
