Honey Bee Project
The Bees by the Blacksmith Shop is a wonderful public-private partnership that brought honey producing hives to the open space near the Blacksmith Shop! The Watermark at Bellingham Senior Living sponsored the hives, and Carmen B’s Honey, a Township-based small business, will manage and maintain the bees! The Watermark will introduce apiary education to its residents and begin using the honey in its recipes and cooking classes! But that’s not it, the Township has also recently been award a $2,500 Keep PA Beautiful grant funded by Giant Food Stores to begin a youth apiary program! In 2022, we’ll be rolling out a kids program complete with youth-sized beekeeper outfits so they can safely get close and see the inner workings of the hives. For more information about this unique partnership, please visit the Township’s website.
