BEES project - Breeding, Education, Environment and Skills
The BEES project was about bringing together beekeepers from across South East Wales to:-
- Explore and develop a local/regional Queen Bee breeding programme to supply a quality bee with good characteristics and survivability to meet the needs of the local market.
- Raise awareness of bee’s, beekeeping and its importance to biological systems and diversity with organisations, schools and the general public
- Work Co-operatively to facilitate the sharing of skills, ideas and best practice between beekeepers.
The project co-operated with three LAG areas (Local Action Groups)
– Vale of Usk (Monmouthshire and Newport)
– Cwm a Mynydd (Caerphilly and Blaenau Gwent)
– Rural Action MRCT (Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taff)
