UnBeelievable buzz at Fed Square

20 Nov 2012

UnBeelievable buzz at Fed Square Image

If you’ve been hearing a buzzing coming from somewhere, you can rest easy, it’s coming from the rooftop of Federation Square.

Rooftop Honey, a project by Mat Lumalasi and Vanessa Kwiatkowski, installs and nurtures beekeeping stations and has recently set up on the roof of one of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings.

The pair said they thought Fed Square was an ideal location when they decided they wanted to do something in the city.

“It is an amazing central location in the CBD, with close proximity to the Botanic Gardens,” the couple told Southbank Local News.

Initially set up for 12 months, the plan is to provide honey to local restaurants around Fed Square, including Taxi, Riverland Café and Transport.

But that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get your hands on some honey yourself, as Vanessa assured: “The excess honey will be sold to the local city community.”

Depending on the success of the program, Vanessa and Mat are hopeful the installation can remain on the roof on a more permanent basis.
