Bee Garden - the first community garden in Da Lat, Vietnam.

Bees4life happliy announces to be active for bees offline since the beginning of the year 2019.

Offline? What does it even mean?

Well, we understood that it’s nice and all to publish bee-related content and involve people in the online world through Facebook & Instagram.

Still, something was missing.

We wondered, what could we do?

So, getting back to the problem with our insect decline up to 75 % in the last 30 years and the apparent root cause lying in the toxic chemicals of our food production system, we opted for 2 kick-off projects.

Both projects were launched in the beginning of this year 2019 and put in practice with the help and inspiration of many volunteers living or travelling throught the beautiful mountain city of Da Lat, Vietnam.

Community Garden (Bee Garden Da Lat)

With the help of the experienced and motivated urban gardener Duong Pham and the availability of an unused land in a residential area, Bee Garden was born. We pictured a place where people come together at least once a week and grow vegetables for humans and wildflowers for bees and pollinators – obviously without using chemicals. So far the Facebook group counts almost 400 gardeners and the first Community Garden in Da Lat is proud to harvest loads of beans, corns, pumpkins, carrots and a myriad of seeds.
