In August, our managing director Joern Herrmann once again visited the bee pasture on the isle of Fehmarn (in the Baltic Sea) that Roeper has been supporting with a donation for several years now. Joern even had a chance to take a sightseeing flight in a small plane to take a look at the “Roeper” lettering the local farmer planted this year. If you are interested in a video of the flight please have a look at our homepage!
A bee pasture is a strip of meadow adjoining agricultural areas where crops valuable for pollinators such as bumble bees, wild bees, butterflies and other insects are planted to provide nutrition from sprint to fall and thus ultimately increasing their population. Such planting also provides a place of refuge and hibernation possibilities not only for insects, but also for birds and small animals such as field hamsters and small game. Bee pastures encourage biological diversity and species protection. During the last couple of years, there have been more and more initiatives to cultivate such bee pastures, which are not only pretty to look at, but a true contribution to nature protection.
