Bee Keeping

Green Park is now home to two hives. Recently the bees have been prepared for the warmer spring weather by opening the hive and removing the winter installation. The bees will now collect nectar so they are able to begin feeding themselves, but as their honey stores will be extremely low we will carry on feeding them throughout the spring.

Part of our landscaping program includes planting selected areas bordering Foudry Brook to Wildflower meadow using a Honey Bee Mix. The bees also have other plants on the park that they can feed from such as lime trees, lavender and ivy.

If you are keen to learn more about bee keeping or become a Green Park bee keeper please contact us for more information on the bee keeping courses we offer:
