The B4 Project is a Community Interest Company representing a group of beekeepers whose aim is to protect the UK’s native honey bee.

by Andrew Brown in Metherell, England, United Kingdom

The purpose of the B4 Project is to conserve, protect and increase the population of Apis mellifera mellifera,  the European Dark  Honey Bee  (EDHB),  by the fusion of science and beekeeping. This will be achieved by:


  • Setting up reserves with like-minded beekeepers.


  • Working closely with scientists to identify genetic purity of samples taken geographically.


  • Informing the public about the EDHB.


  • Influencing decision makers.

If you want to learn more about the B4Project come along to on of our events at the Eden Project and various apiaries across the South West between 16th February and 24th February. Booking essential.
