PRESERVING BEES AND OTHER INSECTS AT AVANTIS

Bees and other insects lose their natural habitats! Social, public and economic actions go hand in hand with responsibility. At the Avantis business park, a project for the insect- and bee-friendly management of green spaces has been started to preserve and promote biodiversity.

 

In 2018, suitable native wildflower mixtures were sown on an area of 6,000 m², another 6,500 m² followed in 2019. In cooperation with the Aachen beekeeper Geller, a total of 24 bee colonies were set up at the business park, which have now produced the first honey.

The Avantis honey is already there and you can try it out: http://www.imkerei-geller.de/.

 

In addition, as part of the project, the company Hexenland Biene UG has temporarily rented a total of 43,000 m² to create bee pastures and flower meadows. The company’s own beekeeping Hexenland Biene GbR is setting up additional bee colonies on the prepared areas. The aim is to involve the population in the preservation and promotion of insects and bee species through sponsorships. You can also buy honey from Hexenland Biene GbR. For further information please visit https://hexenland-biene.de/.

Three years after the start of the project, the first results are visible: seasonally magnificent flower pastures and a high diversity of different insect species.

 

You can also make a contribution and become part of the project through sponsorship. Please contact therefore Hexenland Biene UG.
