Help the Hive

Help the Hive is BUSI’s charitable initiative to educate and support local bee farmers.


All money generated will be split between our main objectives.


Objective 1 is to support new and upcoming bee farmers to assist them with equipment and setting up their first hive.

BUSI believes by empowering young and upcoming farmers we can make a financial difference in their life by helping the environment.


Objective 2 is to educate the public and youngsters on the importance of bees.

By spreading knowledge and deepening interest we can help future generations to protect the bees and introduce them to profitable bee farming.


Please feel free to reach out to gain more information and how you can get involved with Help the Hive.

How to help

Plant a Bee Garden

Plant as many native flowers in your garden as possible, so that bees have a diverse and regular food supply.

They provide great sources of nectar and pollen (both food for the bees and butterflies).

Buy local honey

Support local beekeepers who practice sustainability, so that you know where your honey is coming from.

This way you’re helping to support a farming industry that protects the bee populations.

Avoid using pesticides


Harmful chemicals causes declines in the bee populations and can make it into the honey you buy.

Try using organic solutions and buy organic honey to make sure that bees are pollinating in pesticide free areas.
