OUR LOCALLY PRODUCED HONEY
The existence of a World Bees Day (20 May) reminds us of the essential role that bees and other pollinators play. According to the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, the value of the ecological and economic services provided by bees corresponds to 577 billion. In addition, one third of the world's food production is directly dependent on their pollination activity, and bees are the most effective pollinators. Through the pollination of plants, bees promote agricultural production, which ensures food security, and through their highly nutritious products (honey, royal jelly, pollen, etc.), the nutritional security of the population.
Yet bees and other pollinators are in decline in some of the world's major agricultural regions. In addition, more and more pollinator species around the world could become extinct due to a variety of pressures, many of which are human-induced.
Thank you to Mr Marc VALLEE, our hotel's beekeeper partner, for allowing us to contribute to helping the bees in our garden.
