The city: a refuge for bees
With an annual mortality rate of 30%, it’s high time to protect them! In the city, the mild temperatures, the absence of fertilisers and pesticides, an increasing number of green spaces, and the diversity of plants on terraces, balconies and courtyards attract bees. This way they can continue to pollinate numerous species of plants, preserving the planet and promoting biodiversity. Thank you Paris!
In woods, parks, gardens, or on rooftops, Paris is a veritable honeycomb! Rest assured, these installations are secured. They are all managed by associations or placed under the responsibility of the City of Paris. Several are nestled in the Bois de Vincennes and Bois de Boulogne, others in green spaces, the most famous being the teaching apiary in Parc Kellermann (13th arrondissement), and the apiary school in the Jardin du Luxembourg (6th arrondissement), which trains beekeepers in new methods and how to protect the bees. But they are also found on rooftops, on the town hall in the 4th arrondissement, the Opéra Garnier, the Grand Palais, Vuitton and even the Tour d’Argent!
Mother, bohemian and Parisian, I love Paris' cosmopolitan side and warmth. Exhibitions, walks, outings with the children...I'll take you on a discovery of the most welcoming places in Paris. My little extra: with my love of food as my compass, I always set course for the best lemon tarts in the city.
