Honeybees and beekeeping are integral to farming and food production. For the past two years (as of 2019), Our New Way Garden has had the good fortune of working with our wonderful beekeeper, Julie, who has almost a decade of experience in the field.
Our New King Street garden is home to two large bee houses housing hundreds of bees. Watch the video to see some of our busy workers in action!
Most fruit and vegetable plants are only able to bear fertile fruit when they are pollinated. Bees do this tedious work for us and ensure that we are able to reap a bountiful harvest. For more information on why bees are so important, check out this article.
