Bee Urban is a beekeeping and environmental education community project, based on a new site at ‘the Hive’ in Kennington Park since March 2015. The garden has raised growing beds, fruit trees, soft fruit, nectar-rich plants, herbs and flowers, with a strong focus on biodiversity. Nectar-rich planting reflects Royal Horticultural Society and British Beekeepers’ Association guidance. Features include a natural observation hive, cob oven, apiary, indoor observation hive, raised beds and planted beds and borders. Project leaders work with Hiver Beers to host the ‘Hiver experience’, involving a beekeeping session and honey and honey beer tastings. Local volunteers maintain the site and help with tasks such as beekeeping, construction and carpentry, cob-oven construction, bread and pizza-making and candle-making. Open days take place on the second Sunday of each month.
