  • Urban Bees Ltd

    Email:

    Urban Bees is a company that helps bees in towns and cities by promoting sustainable and responsible urban beekeeping and creating much better forage and habitat. We work with communities, charities and corporates to educate people about the importance of bees and provide corporate ‘bee makeovers’; practical steps for how to transform our urban environments and our thinking to help bees and other pollinators – from planting trees and flowers that offer year-round food, to making and installing homes for wild bees. We also train urban beekeepers and produce urban honey. We have hives at various locations across the capital and advise on forage and bee habitats in other towns and cities. Urban Bees was founded a few years ago by Brian McCallum and Alison Benjamin. They have co-written three books about bees , Keeping Bees and Making Honey, A World without Bees, and Bees in the City,  and wanted to share their passion with other urban dwellers in order to make cities more bee-friendly and more sustainable for humans too.
