OTTAWA'S POLLINATION PROJECT
MEET THE BEES THAT MAKE YOUR HONEY
Honeybees are social insects, living together in their beehives, spending their summers visiting flowers. The honey the bees make is pure, rich in antioxidants and naturally antibacterial. It's a healthy alternative to processed sugar.
COMMUNITY SUPPORTED POLLINATION
We know how important it is to know where your honey comes from. That's why we love connecting you to the bees that make your honey! You can be assured that your honey is pure, raw and local and from bees that pollinate your city and are well-cared for.
HOW IT WORKS
Join our Community Supported Pollination Project by purchasing a Hive Share (a share of the honey harvest) at the start of the season. Once the honey is harvested you'll receive a year's supply of honey at one of our Bee Days.
We have 2 share options at 3 locations:
Single shares include 12 x 500g jars of honey
Double shares include 24 x 500g jars of honey

At our Bee Day in September, you will learn all about the honeybees. You can put on a bee suit to get up close and personal or watch the bees from our viewing tent. We will open a beehive and show you how the honeybees live, explain how they make honey, and how we harvest it - with lots of time for questions. It is a great learning experience for the whole family.
2020 Bee Day Dates:
