Why Beekeeping

The potential of beekeeping to mitigate economic hardship cannot be overemphasized. Beekeeping can be said to significantly contribute to a reduction in household poverty if well managed. It not only adds towards increasing the household income but also promotes diversification of household nutritional, beauty and medicinal products for household use and sale on their market stalls.



We do understand that training can lead to greatly improved harvests of honey and beeswax. There are many ways to assist honey hunters or beekeepers to build on their resources to create more income by harvesting and processing honey more skilfully, and to obtain better prices by saving and selling beeswax and by making secondary products.


Our Vision and Mission

No. There are many other bees and other types of insect that are important for pollinating our orchards and crops and wild flowers. These include bumble bees and solitary bees, but hoverflies, wasps and butterflies are also pollinators, and other creatures, such as humming birds and bats may pollinate certain plants.

Many families of plants are good for bees. Unfortunately many highly bred varieties of plants grown for their attractive appearance may be useless for bees, producing neither pollen nor nectar. Garden centres often feature labels indicating good bee plants, but simply observing which flowers are attracting bees is a good guide. Because climatic conditions and soil types vary from place to place, there can be no definitive list of suitable plants, and gardeners have to do a certain amount of trial and error.


Bees are vital for the preservation of ecological balance and biodiversity in nature.
