Project 4: Producing abundant bee pollinators for sustainable farming

This project aims to increase the number of strong, healthy honey bees to ensure pollination services for agricultural crops. In many areas, pollen and nectar sources are being removed leading to poor nutrition for bees. They become weakened, malnourished and sometimes starving. To restore flowers for bees we are installing demonstration plantations of trees and shrubs to show how to supply a steady source of high-protein pollen to support bee colonies. The result will be more bees for pollination services leading to increased crop and pasture yields.
