We don’t want to harp on about it, but bees are pretty damn important. They pollinate over one third of the global food supply. So when we hear about local beekeepers spreading the honey love in their neighbourhoods, we like to sing their praises. Affectionately named after the aforementioned benefit, Bee One Third are pioneering urban beekeeping in Brisbane by installing hives on rooftops, in backyards and community spaces, then taking care of all the upkeep.
As well as helping produce nectar, Bee One Third also run workshops – to spread the word about how important the honey bee is and why we need to be more proactive about sustaining production. And environmentally-minded businesses around the city are already advocating the impressive initiative by stocking Bee One Third to sell in-store or including the honey in their dishes. How sweet is that.
