Having been working with local untrained bee farmers for over six years Green Care Association decided to identify farmers who are willing to convert traditional hives to top bar using local material like Bamboo. Thanks to openness of some local craft men like Mr Bouba who are ready to carry on the change. Being traditional leader, Mr Bouba is willing to also help spread the word and practice to other crafts men and farmers. He is to be trained in making top bar hives out of bamboo for Green Care to make available to local farmers.
Thanks to Globalgiving funds this project is seeing the light of day. This is to be followed by serious promotion thereby making possible cheaper hives, easier labour, Increased quantity and quality of honey for the common good.
