NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY BEE PROJECT

Last Thursday saw the arrival of four beehives on the roof of the National Portrait Gallery offices. They started this project in response to news of the UK bee population being in decline. The Gallery are working with the London Honey Company and next year  hope to have their own honey for sale in the Gallery shops.  It is said that urban honey can be more flavoursome than rural honey, due to the diversity of plants in the city – and with the beautiful St Jame’s Park right next door they hope this will be the case! 

My good friend, Sarah Orecchia is well aware of the importance of restoring the UK bee population. Her Bee Prepared products are based on bee propolis.
