The Printworks and Hard Rock Cafe Manchester are celebrating their second annual honey harvest this month, which has amassed an incredible 213 jars of Manchester’s finest #LiveFromTheHive honey. Made by the city’s hard-working honey bees, the #LiveFromTheHive honey is available to buy now from Hard Rock Cafe Manchester, at just £10 a jar. Funds raised from the sale of the honey will go towards the work of the Booth Centre and Forever Manchester.
An amazing 320,000 honey bees live on top of The Printworks, in the much-celebrated rooftop eco garden. Launched in 2012, the rooftop garden now hosts four hives and is a hub for nurturing these brilliant little creatures.
This year a fantastic 213 jars have been produced by the honey bees, almost doubling the yield from last year’s harvest. Centre Director of The Printworks, Fred Booth, says: “The second honey harvest is the biggest batch yet and has created a real buzz at The Printworks. We are proud to be raising even more money for two outstanding Manchester charities and we’re sure that the jars of honey will go on to become collectors items yet again - we have already taken pre-orders for 99 of the 213 jars.
“The rooftop garden and its produce has gone from strength to strength and we are sure that its success will continue for many years to come.”
Emma Livingstone, Sales and Marketing Manager, Hard Rock Cafe Manchester adds: “After all the hard work everyone has put into looking after the bees over the past twelve months, we are delighted that the honey harvest has gone so well. We hope that the hives continue to thrive and that we can keep using the honey to help local charities.”
