Enterprising Bees Project

Based in Rouken Glen Park, Young Enterprise Scotland (YES) are on a mission to inspire and equip young people, irrespective of their background, to learn, develop and reach their full potential through enterprise education.

Always creative in their educational approach, the charity’s Enterprising Bees project offers a unique learning experience that teaches young people about sustainability. Each beehive is home to up to 40,000 bees and the project aims is to encourage young people to learn more about the environment whilst being entrepreneurial as the funds raised from selling honey go towards funding more good causes.

Explaining what the grant funding will be used for Geoff Leask, Chief Executive at YES said:

“Young Enterprise Scotland was very grateful to receive a grant of £2000 from the Merchants House of Glasgow to support our Enterprising Bees project. The bees are the buzz of our Training Centre at Rouken Glen Park and are hugely valuable as a teaching tool. Seeing the bees up close encourages young people to learn about sustainability, to ‘think like a bee’ and to grow their entrepreneurial mindset. This grant will allow us to move our growing number of bee-hives to a purpose-built teaching area which can accommodate more bees in a more suitable location and provide an inspirational learning experience for more young people.”
