Demonstrate the best practices in beekeeping
Support a greener and more sustainable Adelaide city
Welcome to Adelaide Bee Sanctuary.
I established Adelaide Bee Sanctuary in 2015 because of my concern for honey bees and all pollinating insects. I have installed beehives in the City of Adelaide as a way of connecting people to bees and raising awareness of the importance of all pollinating insects to our food security and eco-system. I work with local government to change perceptions and policy related to bees and their management within the urban environment and I also work with orchards in the Adelaide Hills. I am very grateful to the owners of these beautiful orchards who offer a Sanctuary to the honey bees that I rescue.
80% of the food we eat relies on pollination.
Globally, we no longer have enough bees to pollinate our crops. Toxic pollutants, loss of habitat and the lack of biodiversity influences the health of our honey bee population and this threatens our own food security. You can help by supporting the bees at Adelaide Bee Sanctuary and becoming a sponsor.
