    Honey harvest
    EESC urban bees have produced 40 kilos of honey! As part of the EESC Urban Bees project, this summer we harvested forty kilos of honey produced by the beehives on the EESC rooftop terrace. According to initial estimates, this year's harvest is significantly less than last year, due mainly to the long, cold winter. As last year, we will not harvest any more honey until the end of the summer. Our bees will be allowed to keep everything they collect from now on, so that they can build sufficient reserves to get them through the winter.
