Philippine bee initiative

As lowland dwellers in the Philippines appear to be facing financial crisis and food shortages, highlanders have other alternatives including hunting, gathering root crops and wild fruits. And now beekeeping is being encouraged. The Cordillera Green Network has delivered a basic beekeeping seminar workshop and provided starter colonies and smokers for Kibungan farmers after getting the farmers to agree to receiving technical supervision and support. A rather unfortunately-named company is lending a hand -- the PiBeeCo.
