The Canberra Urban Honey Project is a community project by the “Honey Delight” family in response to the many comments people make to us about the changing bee populations in the city.

The Honey Delight family has been part of the international effort to highlight the problems bees face for a number of decades, so it is incredibly rewarding to know people now understand the problems. For example, we contribute to the honeybee research program, and have actively participated in a number of research projects to understand honey bee health and their importance in pollination. One area we are most proud of, was our involvement in the early pollination studies for canola, which helped us understand how honeybee pollination increases the oil quality from canola crops.
It is a joy to us to help increase the number of bees in Canberra. We hope this will mean more pollination of backyard fruit trees, vegetable gardens and balcony vegetable pots. Ultimately, it will mean our city is more sustainable.
If all goes well, and this will always depend on the weather – we might have some Canberra Urban Honey to share with you all.
