Bees are crucial to our ecosystems: as a link in the food chain for birds, bats and another creatures, they help maintain biodiversity. They also dust around 80 per cent of plants with pollen, helping secure a large component of our food supply. Without the work of wild bees and honeybees, farming yields would be much lower – affecting not just a wide range of fruit and vegetable varieties, but plants like sunflowers, too.
What would a garden be without bees?
To maintain the biodiversity of animals and plants in urban environment, Deutsche Wohnen has launched a series of projects entitled Bienen finden ein Zuhause (Homes for Bees).
As part of this initiative, a lot of green spaces have already been planted with colourful mixed shrubs or transformed into wild flower meadows. These natural spaces, carefully preserved according to environmental criteria, can now offer the endangered insects a new home. And tenants can enjoy the variety of flowers and buzzing of the local wild bees.
For the love of bees
