BeeConnected school for urban beekeeping
A presentation of the first generation of BeeConnected urban beekeepers who just finished their training, within the 4 months long theoretical and practical course.
About the presentation
The course was led by Slađan Simonović, an experienced beekeeper, and the program was supported by Heinrich Boll Stiftung.
During this event the project BeeConnected will be presented, that in addition to the Beekeeping School, launched a campaign in collaboration with the Creative Unlimited Agency, with the aim of informing the general public about the problem of endangered and disappearing bees on the local and global level, and how can we contribute to the regeneration of the new population of these insects. This topic is the most important one these days, because without bees and other pollinators, there would not be most of the plant crops on which our diet depends.
All the visitors will get the printed manual with a list of more than 100 plants that anyone can plant to attract and feed bees and other beneficial insects while improving local biodiversity. Also, everyone in attendance will be able to taste the popular sweet honey spreads made by Happy Honey.
