Honey Harvesting Demo
Originally posted Oct 2018
The first Raw Honey harvesting demonstration with exclusive participants,. They get to see how I harvest raw honey from the beehive and also tasted some of the harvested honey. It was their first time harvesting and tasting such freshly harvest raw honey right in Singapore. They are probably the only few had such memorable experience. Hope to conduct such workshop more often in the future to encourage more to people to save our local honey bees in Singapore and make their own honey!
First Rooftop Apiary in Orchard Road
Original event on Dec 2019
We have just held our first Bee gardens Workshop event at Temasek Shophouse. The very first Bee gardens developed at the heart of Singapore, Orchard Road.
It is an experimental collaboration for Nutrinest with Temasek Trust. It is also our third Bee garden in Singapore. The objective of this garden is to share the important of our local honeybee and the possibility to have urban beekeeping for conservation.
Above is the shot video clip of the event on that day. Hope you will enjoy it!
More than one hundred participants had participated on that day. Many participants tried some honey produced by our local honeybees, make their own Honey Ice Cream and lip Balm using the 100% Beeswax that we extracted from our unwanted honeycomb. Some participants also got to experience honey extraction from the beehive make by the bees in the gardens and tasted them. Many kids also enjoyed feeding some honey to the bees in the garden with their bare hands!
I can see a huge possibility to cohabit and share our space with the local honeybees. It is not necessary to exterminate any beehive found in your area as we can always humanely manage the wild bees by rehome them to a suitable location.
I hope with more of such event will change people's mindset about bees and welcome the idea of sharing space with them. We need our local honeybees to help us in keeping our ecosystem healthy as all living things benefit from what the bees have been contributing to all.
