3Bee Technological Hive Adoptions

I am part of 3Bee's 'Oasis of Biodiversity' project. You can adopt one of my hives. This project allows me to regenerate biodiversity by caring for bees using innovative technologies developed by 3Bee. Here you can choose to adopt your hive from a distance and I will take care of it using the best techniques.

My history

The Mel project was born within the social cooperative Dalla Stessa Parte, which has been active since 1983 in the lower Canavese area, working in the field of labour integration and social integration in particular of citizens with disabilities, psychological distress, migrants and refugees. In addition to the many activities we carry out, an interest in beekeeping was sparked in 2015. Thanks to a crowfunding campaign we were able to start this adventure. Today we manage 300 hives with which we produce royal jelly, honey and pollen from our region. Being able to offer you a healthy, genuine product is the basis of our management choices. The care of our bees with natural products and the selection of the best places to take them guarantee you a honey of the highest quality. In addition to production, we take care of selecting bee strains that are increasingly resilient to the new challenges imposed by pressing climate change.

What do you adopt

Thanks to 3Bee technology, you can remotely adopt your chosen hives and monitor them 24 hours a day. By tracking the bees' main biological parameters - such as weight, temperature, humidity and sound intensity - you can follow their progress, growth and health status directly from your smartphone. The beekeeper will take care of your bees.

You will also receive your digital certificate via email. If the adoption is a gift, you can print it out and give it directly to the recipient.

What do you receive

If you choose to adopt hives and receive their honey, once your bees produce it, you will receive their honey directly to your home. All you have to do is select the favorite flowering, the amount of honey you want to receive, and wait for your bees to produce it.

We respect the bees' and beekeeper's production time, and you can check in your profile when the honey is scheduled to be delivered.

Meanwhile, from the app you can follow the work done by your bees.
