31/05/2018 - MARSEILLE IS BUZZING AND THE RUCHES PERISH.
The territory re-affirms its commitment to protecting the environment. As part of the sustainable development week, 4 hives will be installed on the roofs of the Mediterranean Center of International Trade (CMCI), in partnership with the Metropolis Aix-Marseille-Provence and the Provence Epicurean Fund.
On the occasion of this future installation, the World Trade Center Marseille Provence, which has always been promoting eco-responsible initiatives and sustainable development, welcomed a distribution of seeds ready for sowing this Wednesday.
This approach and hives represent a strong eco-citizen gesture and are part of the continuity of the project “flowers for bees” which distributes, for the second year in a row, seeds to be sown during the month of June throughout the region.
Climate change or increased pollution has led to a significant decrease in the number of bees. The repercussions of a possible disappearance of these pollinating insects could have serious consequences for humanity. Indeed, the majority of crops around the world depend on these insects.
Bees play a vital role in our survival and represent an essential link in the food chain.
It’s up to us to prosper. Each small bag distributed contains 3,000 seeds and can produce up to four flowers per plant. What give bees the desire to forage !
