One of our first featured artisan producers, The Urban Beehive.
The Urban Beehive is driven by two beekeepers, Doug Purdie and Vicky Brown, who met through the NSW Beekeepers Association and decided things were getting serious with bees.
The Urban Beehive started in 2010 with the aim of supporting the honeybees that do their critically important work in urban Sydney.
“We put beehives in city backyards, community gardens and on rooftops; from Bondi to Marrickville – even the Botanic Gardens and Centennial Park. Across Sydney, the bees are enjoying some great views! And our hives are happy and healthy”
Internationally, bees are in drastic decline, with whole populations being destroyed overnight as a result of introduced threats. The Urban Beehive are here to help protect local bee populations against these threats; and to raise awareness of the plight of all our beneficial insects. This is partly through education with their popular beekeeping courses in The Centennial Parklands, plenty of public speaking and now a beekeeping shop in Mascot, Sydney where you can buy all your beekeeping needs in one place..
Support local, buy honey. Proudly supported by Henry Lee’s.
