For 120 million years the bee has danced with plants, making the earth what it is today.
The bees play an essential role in the vitality of Earth. A role of pollination, purification and peacemaking. Bees carry pollen from flower to flower bringing new life to the biosphere and creating nourishing food for the animal kingdom. Their symbiotic relationship with plants teach us how to unite in harmony with the land.
Their remedies also play an important role in our collective wellbeing. From medicinal substances of honey, wax, propolis, royal jelly, venom and pollen, to the pure air that surrounds the hive. The creations of bees are highly therapeutic for the human body, mind and soul.
Today we see challenges bees and plants face. The impact of toxic chemicals, habitat destruction, pollution in the soil, water and air are felt in our collective heart. In light of these challenges, a new generation of Bee Guardians are emerging in a united fellowship who are joining forces with the bees.

Study of ancient and traditional beekeeping methods will preserve the intangible bio-cultural heritage of Apiculture, one of civilisations earliest arts.
Close connection to local food systems is essential for community health. Pollination ensures an abundant harvest of local fruits and vegetables across the seasons.
Creating new cavity sites and nests for bees to live freely within. To allow for natural reproduction, swarming, and the propagation of life.
Nurturing the natural adaptation of wild and managed bee species to build passive immunity and genetic resilience naturally and in harmony with the environment.
The golden age is upon us. A renaissance in the art and science of Apitherapy. Through natural beekeeping we are cultivating pure medicinal hive substances for the vitalisation of our mind, body and soul.
Bees connect us with the land, sky and the solar cycles of time. Through natural beekeeping, bee hunting and wilding, we honour the traditions of our ancestors.
