Shaping a better world

Celebrating the Honeybee 

Celebrating the Honeybee 

Today is World Honeybee Day, and we are happy to announce that our beehives are thrivingToday is a day to celebrate the vital role the honeybee plays in our lives, as well as ways to help protect them, and Ardene is proud to be doing our part.  

Our Beehives 

This year we partnered with Miel MTL as part of their hive partnership program, and a few months ago our 2 beehives, with over 10,000 honeybees per hive, were installed in our garden. Since then, they have flourished. Beekeepers from Miel MTL have made regular visits to check up on our beeand ensure their health and happiness, while also educating the staff on-hand (from a distance) and answering our many questions. Our bees have really become part of the Ardene family, and in fact they are doing so well that their hives are ready for their first honey extraction; a couple of months ahead of schedule! 

Ardene Honey 

Honey is usually extracted from beehives in September or October, but ours are already flowing! Next week the beekeepers from Miel MTL will be extracting our first batch of honeyand then our employees will be invited to a workshop to help label and bottle it – and have a little taste test too! We’re excited to offer this unique and educational experience to our staff, because taking part in this process and learning more about bees will hopefully lead to a better understanding and relationship with our furry little friends – and yummy honey too!
