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.
