What is delicious, good for the environment and available right here in Centennial Park? Honey, of course!
Here are three reasons why Centennial Parklands’ bees are good news for you!
1. Increased hives, improved pollination
Bees are some of the most important pollinators in nature – in fact, it is said that bees are responsible for one of every three bites of food we eat. You can learn more about bees here.
Following the amazing response to our release of Centennial Park Honey, we’ve been able to increase the number of bee hives in Centennial Park. Our hives feature both European and native bees, and are spread out at different locations to ensure we don’t over-populate areas of the Park.
Not only do they help in improving pollination of plants across the Parklands, but we are able to bottle some of the best tasting honey around!
2. Delicious, raw and unheated honey
Centennial Park Honey is 100% raw, unheated and delicious! Put aside the mass-produced supermarket-style products, Centennial Park Honey not only has a fuller, richer flavour but retains the distinct local flavours offered by the plants of Centennial Parklands.
Our honey is ready for you to enjoy, and can be picked up at various Parklands outlets. Here is all the information on our honey and where to buy it.
3. Education and promotion of beekeeping
Our bees and bee hives are also regularly used as part of our education offerings, and our friends at The Urban Beehive are offering you a one-day beginners’ beekeeping course right here in Centennial Park.
Covering the principles of backyard, urban and rooftop beekeeping. The aim is for participants to gain a basic knowledge of European honeybees and the methods of keeping them in an urban environment. Here is all the information, dates and booking details for this monthly course.
