The Hive Effect is dedicated to sowing a better future for all. Founded in Sandwell in 2022, we fight for impactful environmental and societal changes at local levels, nationally and globally. We work to promote the cohabitation of nature and people, firstly by protecting, restructuring, and reconnecting areas of local land, making them inviting, safe, maintained, sustainable and purposeful to the communities of wildlife and people that live there. We strive to hold our leaders accountable, and to educate and empower ourselves and others to create a beautifully sustainable future for all.
At The Hive Effect we educate through nature, or rather, nature educates through us, but in order to provide this hands-on approach there has to be solid foundations from which it can be realised. 5 years time will simply be too late for many urban and suburban locations, (locally and across the wider communities), as the lands required to achieve the goal will already have been sold and developed. Protecting them now will inspire developers, corporations, and councils alike, to plan more consciously toward our environment and toward us.
We are not perfect and we don't have all of the answers, but we do know that we have to try regardless, and we know exactly where to start.
With your help we could achieve the unimaginable, we could evolve so much quicker and become so much more, together. All we need is your approval.
Individuals, businesses, organisations, or whoever you may be, we hope that after looking through our website, that you can find it within your soul to say yes to at least one idea.
This is our lifecycle, and this is our chance to put an end to the Sandwell Legacy.
IMAGINE THE REALITY
Create larger environmental biodiversity, reconnecting people with nature and promote co-existence, and improve the health and well-being of local communities.
Secure, maintain, and manage long-term, natural, wild habitats in urban and suburban locations, for future generations of all species to benefit from.
Provide education and re-education, to positively alter public and individual attitudes toward health, well-being, mindfulness, and the continual impact of our individual lifestyles on the environment and our communities.
Create and organically generate new jobs, business ventures and enterprises that can evolve at an equal pace to the real world around them.
Provide new spaces that are managed and maintained, where people can meet, children can play safely, dog walkers can do just that, and everyone can just get out a bit and exercise or people can just relax somewhere nice, tidy, familiar, and safe.
Have the potential to set precedent for modern approaches to responsible, ethical, sustainable resources, providing a foundation from which other similar projects can be born.
Help existing local businesses reduce their carbon footprint, whilst continually supporting and improving the local environment, and the health and wellbeing of the local population.
Provide a source of local foods.
Generate its own energy and so much more.
THIS IS PERMACULTURE

Bee Sixty Eight
The Birthplace of The Hive Effect
A single plot of land that has theoretically been re-designed to complement and support the wildlife that currently lives there, promote the reintroduction of new species, and allow the interaction between people and nature to take place.
Beehives, polytunnels, water filtration and energy generation are each vital parts of the final working design. Educational, social, health, wellbeing, and mindfulness facilities are to be installed once they are in place.
The Queens Highway
Rowley Reginae -
As if a single plot of land could save the community. Welcome to the Queens Highway, a project that reconnects communities from the hills of Old Warley, all the way across to the Rowley Hills Nature Reserve and beyond.
The King designated these lands Royal hunting grounds, which is how we came to inherit the title of Regis in our name.
This project is in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and it is a permanent reminder of our royal history (and a matriarchal society)?
Brandhall Golf Course
The Heart & Soul of The Hive Effect
Brandhall Golf Course is 37 acres of pristine land, and it is not for sale. Re-designed from the ground up, with shared facilities at either side of the park (at the existing club house and maintenance yard), T.H.E - Brandhall Park will boast a range of unique features, spaces, facilities and activities for everyone, all based around the environment, health, wellbeing and mindfulness.
Thinking outside of the box, The Hive Effect will deliver one of the finest parks in the borough, but only with your help.
Health & Wellbeing
Mental, Physical & Social Wellness & Mindfulness
Health is a primary concern to many who find it hard to afford such a lifestyle and pretty much everyone we have ever had the pleasure of meeting believes that so much more could be done to improve where we live, no matter where in the country that is.
Bringing communities together for a common cause is something that is slowly being lost and a sense of purpose is hard to find for many people in society. The Hive Effect aims to slowly rebuild and provide purpose and opportunity to those people.
