About the Book
We are Beekeepers on a mission to bring bees back to our cities. Concerned by a growing sense of disconnection between food production and consumption and inspired by hundreds of years old practices in Europe, we have created ‘Melbourne City Rooftop Honey.
We not only seek to address issues of sustainability, we also aim to educate and raise awareness of the importance of the honey bee.
By placing hives on the roof spaces of cafés, restaurants, hotels and individual's gardens in and around Melbourne we have reduced the distance from production to plate to mere metres. Hand extracting on site when possible, we encourage you to buy your local honey promising that the flavour will differ from suburb to suburb.
