LSE Bees is run by the LSE Estates Division Sustainability team and works in partnership with the LSE SU Beekeeping Society.
We currently have four urban hives at LSE on the roof of Connaught House on the main campus (one of which we are planning to move to the Passfield Hall terrace).
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, and organise events like honey tasting and bake sales. 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, weekly visits, join the LSE SU Beekeeping Society! We currently visit the Connaught House hives at 3pm each Wednesday weather permitting (take the lift to level 8 then the stairs to the roof).
You can keep up to date with what's happening through our blog, Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram! If you want to know more, just send us an email.
