Spring Solstice Week

URBAN HIVES is also a program to monitor the quality of the air and the environment where we live, through the work of bees. On the ‘Spring Solstice Week’ a special workshop dedicated to botany and flowers for pollinators will be held online. Each of us can participate by improving the environment and the preservation of bees, sowing useful flowers, rich in pollen and nectar. Species that are particularly attractive to bees and butterflies include plants useful in cooking such as: rosemary, sage, borage, chives, thyme, basil, alfalfa, allium, clover. In addition, the beautiful blooms of mallow, lavender, phacelia, calendula, cosmos, bluebells, violets are also useful for bees.

The program is curated by Claudia Zanfi, Green Island’s director.
