Our Story

We are Beekeepers with a vision of bringing bees back to the city and the suburbs of Melbourne. The aim is to be part a global effort to help save the honey bee from the various threats of disease and human habitation.

This project not only seeks to address issues of sustainability, it also aims to raise awareness of the importance of bees whilst creating delicious honey. By placing hives on the roof spaces of cafés, restaurants, hotels and individual's gardens in and around Melbourne we have reduced the distance from production to plate to mere metres.

Melbourne City Rooftop Honey joins the cities like Paris, London, Toronto, San Francisco New York, Hong Kong and many others where urban beekeeping is thriving.  The community benefits by some true ‘local’ produce – a delicious tasting honey which is unique to each site, with less actual food miles plus help green our City of Melbourne.

01 February 2017 • Becoming an Independent Beekeeper

Matt and Vanessa have a wealth of knowledge and experience in beekeeping, which they impart in the classroom in a friendly and informative manner. The hands on, with the bees is invaluable experience for a beginner. I would most definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in bees and beekeeping.

. Vanessa and Matt ran a very relaxed and informative day. Lettung us ask lots of questions . Best part was hands in the give and seeing how they extract the honey.

A terrific introduction to bees and how a hive works. The 'hands on' experience of opening a beehive, removing racks, seeing close up how the hive works was fascinating. Watching honey being extracted from a hive was very informative, and the sample jar I took home was delicious. My questions were answered throughout the day, and Vanessa and Mark were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in taking up bee keeping, to see if keeping bees is right for them.
