Feeding the Bees

Wednesday 1 April, 20:00

Thanks to extensive collaboration between city planners, gardeners, beekeepers and the local government there has been a 20 % increase of wild bee species within the city of Amsterdam. But there is still a lot of room for improvement. For not all areas and minds are Bee-friendly yet. What can we do ourselves to improve the well-being of our urban pollinators? We will explore natural bee-keeping, bee-friendly art projects, environmental bee-policy, edible flowers and melliferous plants.

Food at 18:30, Talks at 20:00. Get your tickets in advance and join the facebook event. Students pay only €5,00.
