Silver Fox of the Year Finalist 2013: Plan Bee
Companies can hire or ‘adopt’ hives, brand them, and arrange for them to be placed either on their site or premises, or at an agreed highly visible location. Individuals can order hives to be installed in their garden and community groups can crowd fund their own hive.
Urban farmer Warren Bader started the company after seeing an opportunity to provide a unique and very simple service, having recognised the growing issues around the diminishing bee population as a hobby apiarist. Bader maintains the hive and procures the honey; 24 bespoke jars per annum for each adopted hive.
