Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ 1 Where does Bees for Development Ghana work?
We have been training beekeepers across Ghana. Our work with master beekeepers and cashew farmers was largely in and between Techiman, Kintampo and Wenchi. We have been working for over 5 years in Afram Plains. We have also worked with citrus farmers in Central Region. We are still active and have staff members in all these areas. Our director, Dr Kwame Aidoo is based in Saltpond.
FAQ 2 How can I get started in beekeeping?
Getting started in beekeeping does not have to be expensive or difficult. The most efficient way is to make your own bee hives and to catch a swarm. Visit the BfD Online Resource Centre to find guidance and information on all aspects of beekeeping. If you are interested in attending our training sessions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
FAQ 3 Is Beekeeping good business in Ghana?
Beekeeping is a very effective way to make significant extra income when practised on a small scale, and can also become a rewarding full time occupation for those who are passionate and committed. Beekeeping does not require lots of labour or capital, but the products it yields hold a high value. So indeed it can be very good business! Start small, get to know your market. Indeed, a good place to start may be buying from other beekeepers and reselling the honey for a small profit.
