Adopt a Cornish bee's hive and support the project to add another colony of bees. An Ideal way to help the environment and learn about the fascinating life of bees without the time commitment. A perfect gift for anybody with an interest in the environment, ecology and sustainable husbandry in Cornwall.
You'll receive a newsletter by email full of information about the project, the care of your adopted bees and information about the progress of the apiary where your adopted hive is located. This is a great opportunity to get involved in a sustainable and eco friendly project from the comfort of your own home. The money is used to create one more colony of Cornish bees which can help to maintain and develop the indigenous bee population. Without a sustainable program of beekeeping the diversity and maintenance of the countries flora and food supplies is at risk.
