World Bee Farms
We need pollinators and pollinators need us.
As a means to long-term social, cultural, globally relevant change, World Bee Farms create measurable solutions to pollination decline and food insecurity by integrating beekeeping with sustainable urban and rural agriculture and innovative business generation.
We believe that the development and implementation of efficient, technologically-advanced urban farms are a key part of the solution, directly impacting the local ecology, generating employment and business growth, and encouraging community cohesion.

Partnering with the Banwasi Seva Ashram, we have established 19 pilot beekeeping projets in India, benefiting over 400 farming families. Through teaching sustainable apiculture to small-scale family farmers, we have enhanced agricultural yields, improved food and nutrition security, and raised incomes - giving families better access to shelter, healthcare and education.

Latvia Community Projects
Beekeeping is a traditional activity in Latvia, and apiculture is one of the sectors in its modern-day agricultural production.
The World Bee Project partners with the National Latvia Beekeeping Association to provide beekeepers and other parties involved with the latest technologies and trends in the development of apiculture, to improve the level of beekeepers' knowledge about apiculture methods, bee diseases, and the selection of nectar-bearing plants.
The WBP is also developing a pioneering strategy to advance the efficiency of honey production, improve the product quality, and increase safety measures - providing a clear path to high-quality apiculture products of EU origin.
