Adopt a Hive

Our adopt a hive scheme is a great way to help the bees.  You can also use it as a great way to give a very unusual gift, either to yourself or to somebody else.

By joining our scheme you will have a share in a new hive at our apiary in Surrey.  Your donation will also benefit local children in Surrey and the surrounding areas, helping us as volunteers to go out in to the community and educate them on the welfare and environmental benefits of bees.

We encourage the public to adopt bee friendly behaviour, promote the development of gardens and the general environment to the advantage of honey bees and other pollinating insects and dissuade people & organisations from persisting with increasing habitat loss, and using pesticides.

We have 2 levels of membership Gold and Silver.
