URBAN BEEKEEPING AND THE TCC​

TCC has launched its urban beekeeping initiative in an effort to help mitigate impact of the declining bee population.​

Canada Bee Population In Rapid Decline

One of every three bites of food eaten worldwide depends on pollinators, especially bees, for a successful harvest. For much of the past 10 years, beekeepers have been reporting annual hive losses of 30 percent or higher, substantially more than is considered normal or sustainable.

TCCs urban beekeeping environment will be home to approximately 100,000 bees. Bees must visit 5 million flowers and travel the equivalent of 4 times around the earth to produce once single kilogram of honey.

From the hives at TCC we will be able to produce approximately 300 jars of honey each bee season.

In June beehives were installed. One beehive produces 10 to 15 kilos of honey annually. The honey is harvested every September.

We will keep you informed about the project’s progress.

How You Can Help

Bees Matter is an initiative to restate agriculture’s commitment to honey bees and bring knowledge to the Canadian public about how they can get involved and help honey bees thrive. Part of the initiative is to get Canadians planting pollinator-friendly gardens across the country to increase sources of nectar and pollen. That’s why they have designating June 4th to 10th as National Planting Week across the country. By planting a pollinator-friendly garden during National Planting Week, you can do your part to help pollinators, such as honey bees, thrive.
