The project aims at installing 30 beehives in different farms around Pai Valley to support local agriculture (pollinisation), farmers (higher yield, extra income), and develop a high quality honey production “100% pure & made in Pai”.
The destruction of our natural environment and the ever growing pollution is making it hard for bees to survive, and we are seeing their population drop drastically everywhere in the world. It has come to a point where some Chinese farmers have to pollinate fruit trees by hand or using robots! And the less bees, the faster the natural ecosystems collapse in a vicious circle.
It is nothing short of a matter of survival for life on earth that we do something to protect bees.
Spreading knowledge and training new beekeepers is one way to do it. Developing natural farms is another, and that is exactly what we are doing at Pai Seedlings Foundation.
A self-financed pilot project was successfully led in the beginning 2018 : two beekeepers have followed a training and received their official state diploma and are now taking care of 5 hives at Pai Seedlings Foundation.
With 30 hives the harvest of honey will generate enough income to support all the project’s costs, train and employ more beekeepers and pay for further investments to expand the project and/or finance new projects.
We need to raise 400.000thb to see this development project come true. You can support us by making a donation here. BOUTON DONATION.
We organize weekly workshop to discover the fascinating world of bees and beekeeping. Please contact us for more details, or visit the workshop page
