The Sweetness of Honey

0

The Himalayan Institute Cameroon’s School of Energy Farming promotes sustainable agriculture methods that support farmers in becoming self-reliant and more productive. Beekeeping is an agricultural technique with numerous benefits: the bees pollinate┬áthe crops which improves the harvest and the honey they produce is valuable both as food and as medicine.

The School of Energy Farming maintains two Kenyan Top-Bar hives on its demonstration farm.

Staff members clean and separate the honey.

After being processed, the honey is bottled and sold in Kumbo and throughout Cameroon.

In addition to being a healthy sweetener, honey is used traditionally in Ayurvedic medicine as an excellent transport for herbs. The Total Health Center in Cameroon uses the honey as a base for several of its herbal remedies for improved digestion, treating sore throats, and overall health.

Energy Farming methods, like beekeeping, help farmers to get the most out of their land and their labor — that’s the sweetness of honey.
