Project Summary

Strategy for environmentally-friendly integration of beehives

Over recent years, bee colonies have been in sharp decline, with grave implications for fruit and vegetable production.

The Strategy for environmentally-friendly integration of beehives aims to support the resettlement of honeybees by converting abandoned former industrial sites and vacant land into ecologically valuable habitats – “nectar corridors” filled with flowers.
