Melbourne joins cities like Paris and London as centres of a major beekeeping renaissance! You can support our intrepid Apiarists and treat a loved one by purchasing one of our Melbourne Bee Friendly Packs!
Rooftop Honey specialise in urban beekeeping, maintaining hives on rooftops all over our bluestone metropolis, and producing truly local and unblended varieties of honey, while increasing Melbourne's biodiversity, keeping our green corridors and balcony gardens healthy, and contributing to the vibrancy of Melbourne's ecosystems. Throw a handful of bee friendly seeds into a garden bed (or do some guerilla gardening and sprinkle them in a back alley) to invite ladybirds, lacewings, bees and other beneficial insect life into your own neighbourhood!
Rooftop Honey's collaboration with North Melbourne's Mork Chocolate resulted in one of our all-time bestselling products: the Mork Chocolate Rooftop Honey Edition, featuring honey from hives in Mork's own North Melbourne locale!

Bee Friendly Seeds:
It isn't difficult to make your backyard, vegetable garden or even patio space a haven for beneficial bees. You'll be helping these important insects, as well as bringing a little nature to your back door. When you attract bees to your backyard you also improve the bees' quality of life by planting a variety of plants bees just love. Think about it in terms of food: to have a strong and healthy immune system, we need variety in our diets - so do bees!
Each pack is hand folded and contains approximately 30 seeds, all sourced from old traditional open pollinated, non-hybrid varieties. These seeds have not been chemically treated or genetically engineered.
Mork Chocolate Rooftop Honey Edition:
A limited-edition collaboration between Mörk Chocolate and Melbourne City Rooftop Honey in which they join forces to concoct a Melbourne Honeyed Dark Chocolate.
In your recycled cardboard tube of goodness, you will receive an 80gram jar of unblended 100 percent raw honey brought to you by local Melbourne City honey bees. The bees fly up to 5km from their hives to gather pollen from rooftop hives and gardens scattered around Melbourne. You'll also receive 250 grams of Mörk's 70 percent original dark cacao.
Ingredients: Cacao powder, 100 percent Cacao liquor and coconut blossom sugar
All tubes contain a recipe card to make a luxurious Honeyed Dark Chocolate on the rocks.
