We Need Bees

More than they need us........We need bees for a successful eco-system.
Learning how to create successful bee colonies is taking place on business rooftops in Kings Cross. An incredible program teaching young people how to manage bees is a collaborative work between Global Generation and local business.
I'm very keen in keeping an eye on the health and welfare of our honey bees. Totally selfish of course, I have honey for breakfast every morning.

Excellent project! I'd love to keep bees but we really haven't got suitable room. I hate honey, though!

What an interesting project. I'm going to check their website.

I like the 'idea' of honey, but find it sickly sweet in the mouth. However, I would love to watch and apiarist (?) at work - from a respectful distance, of course.

Great post!

Good idea Bees are in short supply, although twice I have been almost engulfed by a swarm moving house! The honey (overpriced I say) is wonderful!

Two years ago there was definitely a shortage of bees visiting my back garden. But, it seems like conditions have changed/improved for bees. They're back in full force so far this summer.

I too take honey with my oatmeal each morning. Thanks for putting this topic on the table. :)

Bees on rooftops? Brilliant idea and how wonderful to have honey whenever you want it!

I know about bees in New York and was curious when other cities do something like that. Great idea. :)

One of the joys of London is its range of highly-specialised shops that wouldn't survive in a smaller city, although of course the internet has changed the whole retailing landscape. Anyway, one such place is The Hive Honey Shop on Northcote Road, SW11, dedicated to beekeeping and honey: http://www.thehivehoneyshop.co.uk/default.asp
Your title We need bees reminded me of Alan Davies shouting something very similar in this clip from QI: http://youtu.be/5726yg7-5js
(And if you enjoy this I recommend searching for their discussion of the giant tortoise and the complete meltdown when discussing the Acropolis where the Parthenon is...)

i agree , bees are really important , good shot !

Jack said...

Interesting to think of that being taught in urban London. Cool.

Caroline said...

It is amazing how important bees are - if they disappeared we would probably all end up starving to death.

We do indeed need bee's, and I guess we need plenty of flowers and the wonders of nature to exist along with those bee's. If the property tycoon's had there way in London there would be no green spaces left...
