GARDEN 6, SATURDAY ONLY
Bermondsey Street Bees is a multi-award winning sustainable beekeeping practice and artisan honey business, founded in 2007 by Dale Gibson and Sarah Wyndham Lewis. It has over 100 hives in Central and East London as well as country hives in Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk.
To this day however, Bermondsey Street Bees’ base remains in Bermondsey Street itself…with the original eight hives still on the rooftop of their scenic Victorian warehouse, overlooking The Shard. Every honey produced by Bermondsey Street Bees is single-source and raw, preserving all of the nutritional benefits and rich complex flavours.
Bermondsey Street Bees also pioneers sustainable urban beekeeping strategies through its forage planting initiatives, collaborations with local gardening charities and other projects including a best-selling book ‘Planting for Honeybees’.
Voted Britain’s ‘Small Artisan Producer of The Year’ in 2016, Bermondsey Street Bees has also twice been awarded ‘Best Honey in London’ (200 & 2017) as well as being named as one of London’s ‘Top 20 Food Producers’ and ‘Top 50 Food Heroes.’
