Apis cerana indica is the native bee of the hills of Uttarakhand. Traditionally, this was the bee used in wall beehives to produce honey. However, in recent years, people's enthusiasm for beekeeping and honey production is decreasing. There is need to rejuvenate beekeeping in Uttarakhand both as an alternate livelihood and for increased crop production.
The Society offers beekeeping training programs on an end to end basis including assessment and survey of locations for suitability of beekeeping, training of local people in rearing bees, designing appropriate bee hives and bee boxes, and finally sourcing the honey produced for sale on a no-profit, no-loss basis.
If you are interested in conducting beekeeping training programs in your area contact Arun Prasad at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 8449778400.
