The Golden Co. is an east London based social enterprise. They work with young people in the area, bringing together a diverse group of people from all walks of life to learn from one another, develop and prosper … the main inspiration and focus being bees.
Like the bees themselves, the young people discover the benefits of teamwork and self-discipline, whilst promoting the use of local goods and respect for the environment. They also make their own honey and natural cosmetics (from their bee keeping) and you’ll find them selling their wares at London’s renowned food market, Borough Market on the last Saturday of each month. This experience allows the young people involved to learn about the running of a small business, and through the Golden Entrepreneurship Programme are encouraged to develop and in some cases launch their own business ideas. Sounds great to us.
