In areas where pollinators are scarce, farmers are forced to either pollinate their crops by hand or rent in beehives for the time when the crop is in bloom.
By placing and managing beehives around the city former centre student Josefina Oddsberg and others developed a concept that was sensitive to both social needs and ecological requirements. Soon it grew from a non-profit network into an exciting business idea called Bee Urban.
Today, Bee Urban offers companies and individuals the opportunity to adopt beehives or individual bees. Bee Urban takes care of the bees and the maintenance of the hives. The hives are often placed on the rooftops of the companies who adopt them. Companies who adopt a whole hive also get the honey from their bees, with their own logo, as a way to show their contribution to urban ecosystem services.
