HEARTBEAT HONEY – starts now!
We are so excited… Heartbeat honey can now finally begin! We have found a wonderful partner for the beekeeping trainings for the gold miners in Busia, Uganda. Funny enough the organization we are teaming up with is called THE HIVE and hence fits perfectly with our motto: BEE PART OF THE HIVE!
As if we had known it 😉
Mable and her co-workers from THE HIVE Uganda provide beekeeping trainings, as well as the necessary beekeeper equipment and also distribute the bee products locally. They have been doing this for years and have a long-standing experience in dealing with the not quite so friendly African bee, which is considered more aggressive than its more gentle European counterparts.
This Friday and Saturday THE HIVE will visit the community for the first time. Then the miners that will attend the trainings will be selected. The criteria for the selection will be made available on our website this weekend.
Our on-site partner Stephen already had the chance to witness THE HIVE’s trainings first hand – last Saturday he attended one of their beekeeping trainings in Kampala and was happy to see how professional and practical the training went. The pictures you see are from that event.
We are so glad that we can finally start with HEARTBEAT HONEY. Of course we’ll keep you posted every step of the way!
