Sponsor a Farmer/Beekeeper
As the co-operative society is established, the next step is to form a beekeeping cluster so that local farmers can take their traditional practice of beekeeping on a commercial scale. Formation of beekeeping cluster will greatly boost the economy of local farmers with a notable increase in production of honey in the district.
Modern beekeeping is in its infancy in the region and there is no existing cluster for beekeeping. Hence, local farmers are very much willing to use modern beehives for better management of colonies and learning modern beekeeping technologies for increased production of natural Himalayan honey.
There are more than 300 farmers from nearly 50 villages in Bhilangana block of district Tehri Garhwal who are eager to enroll themselves to form a beekeeping cluster and further enhance their livelihood through commercial beekeeping. Livelihood will also be increased through indirect employment like carpentry work for making bee boxes and renting of bee colonies.
As per the society’s by laws, a farmer can enroll himself as a member by paying membership fee for registration. A member has to pay Rs. 1,000 as membership fee.
Himalaya Tree is associated with the co-operative society as an assistance partner and need your help to raise funds to support the farmers in overcoming their social and economic challenges through a business of sustainable honey production. We are looking for like-minded people who truly believes in the cause of preservation of nature and understand their duty towards our future generation.
Once you sponsor a farmer, donated funds will be utilized for their capacity building, to provide them the necessary equipment essential for beekeeping and technical handholding support.
