The Bijen ABC is a city bee garden next to the Prins Clausplein in the Hague. It provides workshops for adults and children on the importance of bees for our ecosystem and gives information about how bee colonies are organized. They also sell a limited amount of organic honey. The project consists of a small flower and vegetable garden and 15 beehives.
Het Bijen ABC provides a place for bees to live in a densely populated area which is a big improvement of the city's ecosystem. It also raises awareness about the importance of bees and their facing extinction. They organize quests for children and workshops to inform children in a fun way about bees and encourage them to think about what they can do to help the bees.
Sustainable Cities and Communities: Het Bijen ABC gives room for bees to live in the city. This improves pollination and therefore improves the biodiversity in the city.
Responsible Consumption and Production: They sell organically produced honey that doesn’t impose any harm on the bees living in the hives.
Life on Land: Het Bijen ABC uses an empty piece of land to create an environment for bees to live in in the densely populated city of the Hague.
