More bees on the Rive Gauche

You probably know that we really loves bees and honey (we even make out own), so here’s some really good news for us…

On the 18th March 2008, the Paris ‘conseil régional’ (local council) installed eight new hives in garden on the Left Bank. They have been split between Invalides, Babylone and Vanneau. The idea is to help preserve these creatures, increasingly menaced by modern pesticides. 30% of the bee population has died every year since 1995, and 15,000 beekepers have had to change jobs in the last ten years.

We think that installing more beehives in the city is a great move, and hopefully we’ll be going to see them soon!
