              Beekeeping (or apiculture, from Latin apis, bee) is the maintenance of honey bee colonies, commonly in hives, by humans. A beekeeper (or apiarist) keeps bees in order to collect honey and beeswax, to pollinate crops, or to produce bees for sale to other beekeepers. A location where bees are kept is called an apiary or “bee yard”. Source: Wikipedia

              Beekeeping is probably the only form of agriculture with an overwhelmingly positive impact on the natural environment. It is a valuable conservation tool, allowing people to derive economic benefit from indigenous forests and other floral resources in a non-destructive way, ensuring local participation in conservation efforts. It also makes a very significant contribution to other forms of agriculture by effecting the pollination (link to pollination page) of many economically important plants.

              Micro-franchise model – African Honey Bee (AHB)
              AHB’s micro-franchising model sidesteps many of the pitfalls of existing development interventions while providing beekeeper partners with:

              • A proven micro-beekeeping business model (i.e. reducing risks to people who are already in poverty)
              • Maximizing economies of scale via replication;
              • Training, mentoring and support;
              • Low cost infrastructure, equipment, consumables and logistics; and
              • Off-take agreements/partnerships with large retailers.

              Cape Town Urban Beekeeping has potential to improve the lives, nutrition and income to many people.
              The aim of the Urban Bee Keeping Project is to extend benefits to historically disadvantaged people throughout greater Cape Town. This is done through skills transfer and AGRI SETA training in the practice of bee keeping as well as investment in equipment and business skills. Training consists of a one-year interactive course followed by at least three years of mentorship.

              Keeping bees can be for recreational purposes if you want an outdoor hobby and love the environment or it can be for commercial purposes as an income generator through either honey production or pollination services or both.
