Beeple Honey Collective

New Zealand's honeybees can no longer survive without human help and we really need bees! Did you know that a staggering 52 percent of our supermarket produce is completely reliant on a bee at some point in its creation? If we feed the bees, the bees feed us!

Here are ways you can bee involved with the Beeple Honey Collective – caring for our bees and feeding our community's hungriest tums at the same time. 

Interested? Fill in the form at the bottom of the page to let us know how you'd like to bee a Beeple.

Host a fully serviced Beeple hive in your own garden (or our community apiary) and you can spend this summer watching your bee-autiful busy bees pollinate your neighbourhood.

Come harvest time, you'll keep 10kg of your very own honey to share with whānau, 'āiga, family and friends, as well as providing yummy honey to local low decile schools.
