A very happy World Bee Day to you!
Did you know that bee pollination contributes to 70% of the world's crops? The success of our species is dependent on theirs. There are 98 species of bee in Ireland; nearly 1/3 are threatened with extinction.
Robert Emmet CDP are delighted to install 20 additional hives to our Inner City Beekeeping Project across a variety of Dublin 8 locations over the coming weeks to support Irish bee populations and enhance the local environment.
We also hope, dependent on public health guidelines, to run a series of beekeeping classes over the coming months!
As a social enterprise that provides training and employment opportunities to local community members our Inner City Beekeeping Project also bee enhancing social sustainability!
Many thanks to our project partners- The Digital Hub, Dublin and Smart Dublin- who have made the growth of our project in 2021 possible!
