Bees have been around since pre-historic times (80million+ years). So important is their role that we would not survive in a world without bees. Bees are rich in symbolism representing higher consciousness, the soul, creativity, death and re-birth. Bees are the only insects that produce food that is eaten by humans – rich in both nutritional and medicinal healing properties.
Honey Bees have lived at the church (The Hive Centre) since Kevin and Elsii moved in more than 15 years ago. Neighbours have noted that the Bees have always been there. The Bees are docile, friendly and easily handled by our resident Bee Whisperer, Kevin.
Knowing our history with bees, a good friend suggested that we name the bed and breakfast “The Hive”. It’s perfect. Guests love the name.
When one of our Advisors, Shayne, suggested we re-name everything to The Hive it just made sense. Bees have a fascinating commitment to community and their role within it – exactly what The Hive is all about!
