Aspiring beekeepers will receive help from Duchy

June 2, 2014

According to Blue & Green Tomorrow:

The Duchy of Lancaster has offered financial support for those who wish to begin beekeeping on its land, in an effort to combat the decline of bees in the UK.

Nathan Thompson, chief executive of the Duchy of Lancaster, said, “As custodian of the land with significant interest in the long-term viability of the countryside, we are seeking means to help promote bees and beekeeping within our surveys.”

Thompson added, “As one of the main hindrances for aspiring beekeepers is the associated start-up cost, we are proposing to offer a grant to cover the initial cost.”
