Silesia takes over sponsorship in bee pasture project
Blooming meadows are not only beautiful to look at, they also provide valuable sustenance for numerous insects that are essential for our ecosystem. This natural biodiversity is continually declining due to the extensive management of agro-ecosystems that is required to satisfy our way of life. The collapse of honey bee colonies has risen dramatically. The loss of bees could have a devastating effect on agriculture and food supply because the busy honey bee is by far the most important crop pollinator.
In recent years, Germany’s farmers have increasingly created areas with a rich variety of flowering plants where no pesticides and fertilizers are used in order to create bee pastures and to protect biodiversity. In order to cover the costs for the conversion of arable land into flowering meadows, land management and the purchase of seeds, sponsors are being sought.
This year, Silesia has once again sponsored a surface area of 1000 square meters in the Dormagen area as our way of making a small contribution towards building a prosperous and diverse future.
