For the Love of Bees is a collaboration platform working with individuals, communities and business who share a vision and are committed to regenerating our soils and environment, and leaving a safe and beautiful legacy for those generations who will follow us. We believe that in order to have a serious impact on climate change that we need to maximise photosynthesis opportunities on all available surfaces.
To that end we have established an urban farm, local living compost hubs, pasture paintings to support pollinators and a farmers alliance. Compost from local food and other organic residues on-site or at the compost hubs is a critical part of these regenerative growing activities, and New Zealand Box has collaborated with us since 2016 by providing CarbonCycle composters and supervising the collection of organic residues, as well as managing the necessary composting activity. The CarbonCycle composters are ideal for composting in these urban environments because they are attractive, vermin proof, allow great access to the compost heap and make it clean and easy to turn large volumes of compost.
Richard shares our vision and, aside from the composting infrastructure and activity, he has been of great assistance in helping with education and guidance for us. Our work also involves making presentations and advocating for a regenerative future to Councils, local boards and others. He has contributed his knowledge and energy to assisting us in this important work. We plan to keep working with the CarbonCycle team for a long time to come.
