Did you know our city is scattered with beehives resting on the tops of our commercial and residential buildings?
The Urban Beehive started in 2010 with the aim of supporting the honeybees that do their critically important work in urban Sydney.
It is driven by two beekeepers, Doug Purdie and Vicky Brown, who met through the NSW Beekeepers Association and decided things were getting serious with bees.
Internationally, bees are in drastic decline, with whole populations being destroyed overnight as a result of introduced threats. The Urban Beehive has been established to help protect local bee populations against these threats; and to raise awareness of the plight of all our beneficial insects.
Now you can enjoy the honey from your local area. Buy yours here.
