Unfortunately, due to increasing population, land development and the use of pesticides, bee numbers are declining – the entire world is experiencing a shortage of bees.
Bees provide the much-needed service of pollinating plants. Approximately 80 percent of the flowering plants on earth require the help of pollinators, such as bees, for survival. That includes the plants which serve as food for humans. It is estimated one out of every three bites of food we take is made possible by bees and other pollinating wildlife. We at Derwent Valley Honey believe we need to educate the community to help rebuild the bee population, this is why we have done up this courses.
