Ever thought how wonderful to have your very own Honey? And no, this is not a dating suggestion, Bee keeping is becoming ever more popular. Humans have kept honey bee colonies for thousands of years.  Depictions of people  collecting honey from wild bees dates back at least 15,000 years ago. Efforts to domesticate them are shown in Egyptian art around 4,500 years ago. Jars of honey were found in the tombs of Pharaohs such as Tutankhamun. 
(supposedly the honey was still perfectly edible)
Ancient Romans used honey as a sweetener, they had no sugar, and made a drink of honey mixed with rosewater, also it was commonly used to dress wounds.

 The London Beekeepers' Association (LBKA) is a volunteer-run members' organisation and Registered Charity that represents the interests of beekeepers and urban beekeeping in the central London area. They provide education and advice, promoting responsible bee keeping and raising awareness of the issues affecting bees. Check out the website; 
www.lbka.org.uk, join up and you can buzz along to one of their meetings.
 
If you live in London and already keep bees, intend to do so, or are simply interested in this fascinating hobby, LBKA is the association for you. Even if you don't keep bees, joining them will help support their  cause, campaigns and education programmes.
