Plan bee: parliament to produce honey to sell in shop and give to dignitaries

Parliamentary triangle is ideal for bees because Canberra’s centre is relatively free from pollution and has a good range of plants

It is a fact that Canberra has its fair share of honey-tongued politicians but parliament is about to produce its very own product.

Three beehives have been installed in the grounds around Australia’s Parliament House in Canberra to produce honey for sale in the shop and to give as gifts for visiting dignitaries.
The project is the work of Cormac Farrell, an environmental scientist with engineering company Aurecon, in conjunction with the Australian National University’s Apiculture Society and the Department of Parliamentary Services.
