Become a beekeeper
Keeping bees into your garden or on your plot encourages biodiversity in your area, and keeps the local eco-system healthy. Provided your property is big enough to give them sufficient space, it is easier than you think to become a beekeeper, and there are some excellent beekeeping courses available that will equip you with the know-how you need to start a productive hive.
The world is in the throes of a major bee loss epidemic, which is very bad news for food security. Pollinators affect 35 percent of the world’s crop production, and increase the output of 87 of the leading food crops worldwide. So your little hive can make a big contribution to local biodiversity.
