Bee friendly at Dempsey’s Guest House.

On a few occasions over the years bees have moved into our irrigation system at Dempsey’s Guest House, not without drama. The recent safe removal of them ended with the beekeeper offering to place a bee hive in our garden. We hope this will become their new home and working place and that the irrigation system might have a chance to work again once the drought has broken.

We conserve energy by using a heat pump to heat all water on the property. We use as many energy-saving light bulbs as possible. All our showers are fitted with water saving shower roses. We harvest rain water for use in our laundry; we plan on having more rain tanks for harvesting of rain water to our guest rooms. We recycle: paper, plastic, tins, glass and encourage our guests to do the same. Our garden is completely natural, we don’t apply fertilisers or pesticides of any kind. We are kind to our environment and to our guests too:)
