Choosing the right local partner to care for the bee population is key. Workman arranged a site visit by a local business that offers beekeeping services, Cardona and Son. They confirmed that the woodland would be an appropriate space for two beehives and identified a suitable location, an area raised up on a ridge in the woodland. Their proposal covers weekly visits during high season, up to eight call outs and winter shut down of the hives. They also provided guidance on improvements to make the area better for the bees, including trimming back vegetation to let in more light through the woodland canopy. The Park’s landscaping partners designed and constructed the enclosure for the hives. The bees were introduced to their new home in October 2017 and left to settle in for the winter before producing Roaring Meg’s first harvest of honey in August 2018. Workman and ASI now plan to partner up with Roaring Meg’s occupants to sell the honey and raise money for local wildlife and biodiversity charities.
