Back in March they had 18 hives on roofs around the City of Melbourne. Last time I checked, they had over 40 with hundreds of people on their waiting list. Amazing.
They started with a $1000 grant from the Awesome Foundation and earlier this year, the City of Melbourne gave them a further $28,000 to extend their work.
Some of us were lucky enough to meet Mat and Vanessa, the lovely people behind Melbourne City Rooftop Honey, one Sunday afternoon in Coburg a few months back. They were inspiring, generous, passionate and knowledgable, friendly and accessible and really seemed to enjoy talking with people about what they do. They didn't even mind our silly questions.
