My Bee Movie

|

Category:

Just a collection of bee material I’ve collected over the years…

There’s nothing like an unprecedented heat wave (or freak event) to make you think differently about the environment… With that in mind, I thought I’d share some footage of bees I’ve filmed over the last year or two into a compilation, with some music.

Enjoy!

Doesn’t that make you feel like you’re in an episode of Grand Designs or what?!

On a more serious note – bees are extremely important and we should be more mindful of them in our day to day lives.

One of the easiest thing we can do from a consumer and grassroots point of view is to buy honey that is locally produced.

A resolution I’ll be looking to be doing is to be sourcing that, and it just so happens that there is such a thing as Tolworth Honey!

There’s a whole bunch of benefits of buying and consuming honey that’s produced nearby and these can be found here.

For me, the top line bullet points that peak my interest are:

  • Allergies are reduced (this is a big one!)
  • Cold symptoms can be reduced
  • Your local beekeeper is supported financially
  • If your local beekeeper is supported then so are the bees (and this generally is a good thing)
  • If you use honey in your cooking, generally you may be more in touch with local flavours and seasons
  • Less food miles
  • Generally local is always better

You’ll be surprised what’s possible when it comes to supporting your local bees and here are a couple of useful links to help you find bees locally.

I’d love to run my own beehive(s), but I know there’s a lot to learn.

I’d love to know your thoughts if bees and buying locally (generally speaking) has been more prevalent in ones buying habits – it has for me and I’m always open to exchanging notes!
