LSE Bees is run by the LSE Estates Division Sustainability team and works in partnership with the LSE SU Beekeeping Society.
We currently have five urban hives at LSE on the roof of Connaught House on the main campus - a very unique opportunity to get involved with at LSE!
We work with a professional beekeeper, Dr Luke Dixon of Urban & Community Beekeeping, to maintain and develop our hives. We also sell LSE honey, spread awareness about bees, host social events like honey tasting, beeswax soap making and pub quizzes, fundraise for bee-related charities, organise events with other societies and have volunteering roles available! Here's a photo of one of our hive visits:
So, if you want to learn how to work with bees and maintain a hive through hands-on, regular visits, while making some great new friends and doing your bit to help protect our be(e)loved bees through fundraising events and volunteering opportunities, join the LSE SU Beekeeping Society! We'd love to see you next year!
