Doug Purdie on Bees

Bees are in trouble all around the world with Australia the last place on earth free from Varoa mite and Colony collapse disorder, the two major threats that kill 70% of the bees in the USA every year. Add to that insecticides and our bee populations are in serious decline. In the urban landscape we remove bee habitat constantly and as a result our urban bees are disappearing and our urban crops suffer from low yield because of low pollination.

The Urban Bee Hive places bee hives in community gardens rooftops and commercial spaces across urban Sydney, our aim is to produce a product with as few food miles as possible along with pollination support for the urban landscape.
