A Beehive of Activity in London

By Linda Tancs

With the Olympics fast approaching, you can well imagine the beehive of activity in the great city of London.  But the beehive of which I speak today is of a different variety: 40 colonies, to be exact.  That’s how many families of bees are tucked away in secret locations in London’s Regent’s Park, producing some of the tastiest honey in Britain under the watchful eye of bee farmer Toby Mason.  Did you know that a queen bee can lay as many as 2000 eggs per day?  With that kind of production, there’s plenty of need for more beekeepers and farmers.  You can take beekeeping classes in Regent’s Park and grow your own dynasty.
