Tarland Bee Group - New Apiary

Tarland Bee Group plan to create a new apiary in a walled garden near Tarland. It will let us teach beekeeping to more people.   It will include a hive shelter, a shed for teaching and storing equipment and a wildflower meadow. The apiary got planning permission in June 2018 and we are now fundraising.    We hope to have the apiary ready next spring ready for the 2019 beekeeping season. Please support Tarland Bee Group.  We teach 30 people per year; the new apiary will let us to expand this to 50; we really do need the extra space as more and more people want to learn.  We will have at least two open days per year. The new apiary will include two wheelchair accessible wooden sheds: open sided wooden beehive shelter with metal roof  and a wooden shed with a living roof , with wheelchair accessible composting toilet;  small room to house an indoor hive and  larger room for storage as well as talks/workshops/educational materials.  A path will lead from a new carpark to the apiary. The apiary area will be surrounded by a hedge and the rest of the walled garden will be a wild flower meadow open to the public year round, with seating and info panels contain information about beekeeping.

The project will cost almost £80k and we have already raised £11k. We have applied to various grants already but it would really help if we can raise some additional funds through Crowd Funding.
