Not a day goes by without there being a bit of a buzz about bees in the news, and we were excited to read about a new bee project in Sunday's Telegraph. The article called 'A Hive of Activity for the Young' featured a very special farm in Islington. Freightliners Farm has been running since 1978 and it has animals from pigs to chickens to an aviary of exotic birds...all very impressive considering Islington has the least green space of any London borough. And now they have been lucky enough to add thousands of bees to the menagerie, after receiving a £10,000 donation from the Green Insurance Company.
The money was donated to fund the farm's latest venture 'Buzz Club' – a beekeeping group for young people. An apiary was built, bees were installed, and the club officially launched at the weekend, with a buzzing day of bee-related activities, including making beeswax candles. Local school children volunteer weekly at the farm, looking after the bees and other animals, some of them hoping to work there in the future.
The launch of 'Buzz Club' coincides with the launch a new campaign by Friends of the Earth, called 'Bee Cause'. This campaign aims to reverse the decline of the bee population. They will giving away bee-friendly seeds, encouraging people to go on bee walks and teaching children the relationship between bees and the food chain. The good news is that bees are flourishing in urban environments so kids in the country and city can learn.
The article also features five of the best products for beekeeping beginners, with the Beehaus coming in at number 1. Perfect for gardens in the country or city, the Telegraph calls it “the most stylish urban beehive on the market, for rooftops or garden, by the makers of the cult product, Eglu.”
The eglu is a truly innovative chicken house designed specifically for the first time chicken keeper. Modern and stylish - it is the ideal way to keep 2 chickens. The eglu comes complete with everything you need to get started. The eglu has roosting bars and a discreet nesting box which can be filled with straw or shredded paper. You can collect freshly laid eggs through the eggport on the side of the house.
