WIN a beekeeping course!

Posted August 16th, 2018

It's not easy being a bee these days - with pesticides, disease and climate change to contend with. But Steve Benbow of the London Honey Company has been helping bees thrive in the city for nearly 20 years. As well as making tons of amazing honey, he's introduced thousands of nature-deprived humans to the joys of urban beekeeping.

Now Steve's offering a lucky Loafer the chance to find out more!

For your chance to bag a Beekeeping for Beginners course (or a voucher to fill your pantry with honey and honeycomb), tell us which of the following crops are fertilised by bees (it's not as simple as you might think):

a. Apple
b. Carrot
c. Onion
d. Cauliflower
e. Cucumber

Buzz your answer to [email protected] or flit it on our Facebook page or Twitter feed using #LondonHoneyCompany by Monday 20th August. We'll pick the lucky winner at random from the correct answers and announce the champion on our blog the very next day.
