“Monoga” means “story” in Japanese. The reason why we call it Beetales | Honey Talk is that we fall in love with the stories between these people and bees.
On the rooftop of a bustling tenement building near Tuen Mun Station, a father takes care of a box of bees as a hobby. Every year when the flowers are in full bloom, he collects a little extra honey for his beloved family.
When everything comes to an end, inheritance will bring rebirth to old things. This father is a hundred years old, and his family organizes things for him. Seeing this box of bees, although he doesn’t know how to take care of it, it evokes his feelings. memories in their hearts.
“Can you help receive this swarm of bees?”
“Yes we can.”
The status of a beehive is actually a direct reflection of the characteristics of the caregiver. Arrived and opened, neat and organized. Talking to my son, he recounted all the details of his father’s care of bees.
There is nothing new under the sun. The urban beekeeping we often talk about is actually being practiced in different ways. What is a city? What is nature? Aren’t cities built in nature? Humans and bees have been a part of it for thousands of years, but with the development of human beings, they try to separate the place where they live from nature.
The next chapter of the future of people and bees, this BeeTales | bee people’s honey language, is decided by you and me together.
