Beekeeping is a popular and growing craft in Albania, in both urban and rural areas. Beekeepers face many challenges including maintaining their hives, processing hive materials, and selling their products. This project, sponsored by the Rural Association Support Programme, focused on addressing ways for beekeepers to benefit more from their efforts. Our team conducted experiments to test ways of dissolving propolis, cleaning wax, crafting molds, and making simple cosmetics. We determined feasible and efficient methods for beekeepers to create value added products. Our findings are summarized in educational pamphlets and guides for distribution among beekeepers in Albania and online. These materials provide information for beekeepers to improve their practices to better their livelihoods.
