British Virgin Islands promotes beekeeping

As announced last week, the BVI has launched a beekeeping program as part of their economic stimulus, and to attract entrepreneurs. Agricultural officer Arona Fahie-Forbes said the bee program will provide better pollination of crops and boost production of local favorites like mangos, tomatoes, and pumpkins.

Government officials are showing people how to move bee colonies from trees or underground rocks to beehives where honey can be collected and sold.

Bees are disappearing all over North America, and our BVI government is proactively working to help strengthen and protect the bee colonies.
