We are by no means a commercial organisation, just a beekeeper couple with a passionate hobby, located on the eastern fringe of Melbourne, Australia.
Our mission is to promote beekeeping, spread the knowledge about bees and raise awareness of the issues bees are facing.
Without doubt do bees belong to the most precious and amazing little wonders of nature.
Bees are playing a vital role in our ecosystem, providing pollination to a large variety of plants, helping to provide the food for us.
Please let's think about this for a moment:
Healthy bees are an indication for a healthy environment.
Bee health issues are being reported worldwide.
Should we be worried?
Bees can live without us!
Can we live without bees?
The existence of bees is threatened by the impact human civilisation has on the environment and the bee population is steadily declining. How we humans interact with nature does not always seem to be guided by wisdom but profitability, efficiency, and what is comfortable for us, e.g. spraying a weed killer instead of pulling the weeds by hand.
Not only for the sake of our bees, but for our own survival we must ensure the survival of our bees.
When talking about Bees, by default it is the European Honeybee, Apis Mellifera we are talking about.
