About us

Natural beekeeping

The WellBeeing foundation aims at making a contribution towards a better well-being for bees by keeping them in a natural way.

This means that:

  • The bees are free to have a natural comb build instead of the wax foundations
  • The bees’ winter honey supply is not robbed and replaced by sugar-water
  • The drones of the colony are not eliminated
  • No queen extruders are used and queens are not cut
  • The bees are free to give birth naturally or in other words: to swarm
  • The bees will not be treated with chemical products or acids
  • We work with natural hives, using only natural materials

We have or maintain different natural beehives on different locations in the city of Amsterdam. They are placed on rooftops, city parks and inner gardens.

Make sure you realise that natural beekeeping is focused on the wellbeing of bees instead of the honey production. Only the excess honey is harvested and that amounts depends on availability of nectar-giving plants, weather and other local conditions. This might mean that sustainable beekeeping is not a profitable activity in our regions, but should be seen as an investment in more vital bees and a better future for bees.


At Wellbeeing Foundation, we’re a community of beekeepers & friends committed to protecting bees & pollinators and fostering awareness of their crucial role in sustaining ecosystems.


Our vision is a world where bees thrive, communities support pollinators, and bee well-being is central to ecological health. Through providing more nectar & pollen, education and natural beekeeping, we aim for a future of mutual benefit between bees and humans.


1. Environmental Respect:

We prioritize environmental sustainability and the preservation of biodiversity, honoring the vital role of bees and pollinators in healthy ecosystems.

2. Empowerment through Education:

We empower individuals and communities through comprehensive education on pollinator importance and plants, inspiring action for bee well-being.

3. Ethical Beekeeping: 

We employ natural, biodynamic beekeeping methods that allow bees to express their natural urges to strengthen their immune systems so that they can withstand the threats they face and natural selection.

Our beekeepers have mostly been trained by Geert Van Kerckhove and master beekeepers Albert Muller and Wim Van Grasstek @ BDimkers.nl
