The beehives belonging to the BEEA Honey with Heart youth social enterprise – an initiative of Family SOS – are still buzzing with bees and the kids are planning to harvest their first batch of honey Friday, October 13!
After vandals destroyed their hives in June, the kids at BEEA Honey with Heart were worried that they would not be able to harvest the honey. The vandalism resulted in over 40,000 bees being killed. The money raised from the sale of the honey directly benefits the community and they were worried they would not make the profit needed to pay back their initial investment of $6,000.
We spoke with Donna Williamson, Executive Director at Family SOS and she gave us a fantastic update! Listen below:
