A newly launched initiative provided funded training and expertise to establish a network of well equipped beekeeping enthusiasts.

Urban beekeeping has seen it’s patrons in London double in the last year: The Greater London Authority announced their Capital Bee Scheme (an initiative which provided support to community groups interested in beekeeping) while the latest contributor to bee welfare is the UK Cooperative, who have recently embarked on a new ethical business strategy.

The Cooperative’s ‘Plan Bee’ initiative is impressive in the scope by which it aims to tackle the receding numbers of honey bees: it supports research into Colony Collapse disorder and provides wildflower seeds to Cooperative Customers.
