You know how sometimes you have to know someone who is into something before you can really give it a second thought?
Well my father-in-law is a beekeeper so I was really intrigued when I heard that people keep bees in Hong Kong… yes, it’s an urban jungle, but it also is 80 percent uninhabited. So many of our visitors are shocked when they see how much green space there is here.
But what about the pollution? I would think it might kill them off. But I can confirm that the honey is delicious. Maybe not as good as my father-in-law’s, but still very nice.
HKHoney is a very cool organization of Hong Kong beekeepers, artists and designers who come up with very cool bee products and classes.
Like this pot of honey with a lid that is also a beeswax candle. How clever is that?
HKHoney even offers classes on how to make candles. I would love to check one out! I love their idea of up-cycling tins and glass jars for candle containers.
