For the past few weeks we’ve had two of our workers preparing the grounds of our apiary for upcoming beekeeping training sessions to be held in July.
We were recently pleasantly surprised by a visitor from Japan who is looking to purchase honey from Uganda for the Japanese market. She found out about the beekeeping project at the Timothy Centre through Lesster Leow’s website, www.ugandahoney.com .
Through our partnership with Lesster, it is hoped that enough honey will eventually be collected in the Masaka area to help fill market demands in other countries like Japan.
Hives are being inspected by Lesster and two of our staff.
