The "Pasieka Kraków" project is part of a campaign run by the city of Krakow in cooperation with the Municipal Green Board and the Krakow Beekeepers' Association. The idea is to show residents that you can live eco in the city, and that endangered species, such as bees, can find a friendly home in urban greenery . Honey gained from this project is supposed to be promotion of the capital of Lesser Poland. Krakow is the first city in Poland that has decided to set up a group of urban hares. Research conducted in the US has shown that the survival rate of bees in the city is over 60 percent. (average outside the city 40-50%). The Beekeeping Unit of the State Horticultural Institute in Puławy confirms that urban honey is healthy and, at the same time, cleaner than honey from rural apiaries, where farmers excessively use artificial plant protection products.
I was lucky enough to participate in collecting honey from the roof of the Galeria Kazimierz in Kraków. Great people and amazing work.
