Welcome to the buzzing world of Phāea Plan Bee – our apiculture initiative. Answering the call to bolster pollinators, particularly our beloved bees, and championing their protection, we’ve set up our own beehives. A breed that has been buzzing since Minoan times, they’re managed organically by our expert keeper, who feeds knowledge and techniques back to the Beekeeping Cooperative of Heraklion. It’s estimated these important pollinators are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat, so you can see why we have a bee in our bonnet about protecting and promoting this precious species. Our mission? Creating a bee-friendly landscape, adorned with gardens and vibrant flowering plants that bloom throughout the seasons, along with ample water sources.
