This year the participants not only get to learn about the types of local honey, they also got the chance to make their own lip balm using the 100% Beeswax extract from the unwanted comb that I have. One of the invited guest also share about their experience in co-existing with their bees. Many had decorated their adopted beehive and my task is to fill up all these beehives with colonies of bees.
One of the last year adopted beehive was housing a colony of Trigona that was rehomed from Mandai Zoo area. This colony is now residence at the rooftop of Temasek Shophouse. Nutrinest is collaborating with Temasek Trust in experimenting urban rooftop beekeeping in urban environment, such as Orchard, a very dense environment.
Currently Nutrinest is managing 3 bee gardens within Singapore, in the north, center and west part of Singapore. I hope I will be able to save as many bees from the current pest control exterminating method. I hope more and more people will support my bee conservation work and make Singapore, a city in the garden that is also truely bee friendly.
