'Without bees, there would be no food...
Without food, there would be no human existence', our little buzzing bees just gained a whole new level of appreciation right?
We are proud to announce that we work closely with the incredible Jack, founder of Bee One Third to have access to our very own KTB rooftop honey.
Bee One Third - Neighbourhood Honey is an urban and regional beekeeping organisation working to increase local bee populations within the urban and peri-urban landscape.
Be One Third reconnects communities with the reality of what pollinators do for our food system, our health and our overall well-being.
Here are some crazy facts for you; Globally, Bees contribute directly to 1 in every 3 plates of food that we eat, meaning, one-third of our global food system is wholly reliant on bee pollination. How crazy is that!
On a larger scale, bees contribute to over 97 percent of the global food production - from seed manufacture, all the way through to the growing of vegetables, nuts and fruits. Mind-blowing isn't it!
Therefore, ensuring we get behind beekeepers like Jack is super important to ensure our environment and food supply flourishes naturally.
