THE QUAICH PROJECT LAUNCHES PARTNERSHIP WITH THE WORLD BEE PROJECT CIC

18 July 2019

The Quaich Project welcomed The World Bee Project CIC to Scotland this week, to raise awareness of the importance of bees as part of our natural ecosystem and highlight The Quaich Project’s key campaign theme, to create A Space for Nature.

Jules Haston, Director of Development at The Quaich Project says “The Quaich Project is delighted to collaborate with The World Bee Project CIC. Improved biodiversity is a core outcome of the regeneration in West Princes Street Gardens, with the inclusion of wildflower meadows and a large area of untouched, natural green space to the south of the railway lines, right up to the top of Castle Rock. With these improvements, West Princes Street Gardens is destined to become an even better haven for bees of all kinds.”

The World Bee Project CIC are developing a world-first approach to understand the decline of honeybee populations and how we can help protect them.

Sabiha Rumani Malik, Founder and Executive President of The World Bee Project CIC says “We very much look forward to discussing the vital importance of bee health on our ecosystem, and ways in which The Quaich Project and other community partners can contribute to improving biodiversity in one of Edinburgh’s most treasured green spaces.
