Footnotes

Hong Kong is an incredibly dense and high-rise city. We weren’t 100% sure if bees could sustain themselves in Hong Kong’s urban environment. If they didn’t like the city we would’ve moved them immediately back to the countryside. Surprisingly and fortunately they did sustain themselves in the city, and they continue to amaze us with each new location that we setup a beehive in. The honey in Hong Kong is an eclectic mix of wild and seasonal flowers. But when we taste it, we also taste all the hard work that has gone into producing it. The honey from beehives camouflaged in the urban environment is priceless and a real treat to harvest and eat. ➡︎
