Pollenation Hives at horticulture courses garden in Beginner Beekeepers Posted December 21, 2020 · Edited December 21, 2020 by Sputnik So I have a new neighbor, an organization has set up a training garden on land opposite my house and apairy. I was asked if I could provide some hives for pollination, the garden is a pretty substantial enterprise. I told them my bees would make it the 500m to pollinate but the organizers are still very keen. What are the potential pitfalls here? I am concerned that if I don't provide hives (which I am happy to do) someone else will and then I will less able to coordinate mite treatments etc, so pretty keen to move some of my hives there.
