Safeguarding Pollinators, People and the Planet
A global alliance of gardens and communities ensuring the wellbeing of pollinators, people and the planet. World Bee Project Gardens & Communities are linked to the World Bee Project Hive Network and participate in our globally-coordinated and regionally-balanced monitoring programme for honey bees.
A World Bee Project Garden can be a rooftop garden or landscape-scale ecological habitat, a public garden or a national park that seeks to protect declining pollinator and plant species. It ensures the wellbeing of pollinators, plants and people by addressing biodiversity at local levels. It conserves and enhances threatened plant populations, protects and restores pollinator diversity and density as well as the wildlife that depends on specific habitats for its survival. It has remotely monitored honey bee and bumble bee hives to help create best practice guides for bee abundance and diversity and optimal plant combinations for native pollinators.
World Bee Project Gardens build adaptive capacity necessary for enhancing ecosystems resilience and securing the basis for human wellbeing. They improve understanding of the effects of climate change on plants and on the world’s biodiversity and how the interaction of these changes impacts plants and their role in regulating the global climate. They are a socially relevant showcase for plant and pollinator diversity, education and research, and a basis for connecting communities with nature and with each other.
Ultimately, a World Garden is about land use contributing to the wellbeing of people, pollinators and the planet.
