What is Global Bee Village?
Global Bee Village is a worldwide community of bee lovers, companies and experts who are committed to help fighting against the alarming decrease of bee colonies around the world.
Global Bee Village is owned and operated by BeeValues, the company that coordinates and organize all the operations.
Bees are one of the most useful creatures for humankind. Domestication of bees started with the intention of easy access to honey. But today, bees are found to be essential for pollination and several bee products are recognized as highly valuable for humans.
According to a study by the NRDC (www.nrdc.org) $15 billion a year of crop in the US are pollinated by bees including apples, berries, cantaloupes, cucumbers, lucerne, and almonds.
US honey bees also produce about $150 million in honey annually.
BUT…42% of US bee colonies collapsed in 2015.
This is happening right now on a worldwide scale.
What is our plan?
Together, we are strong!
We help, on a worldwide level, all local initiatives that work towards expanding the amount of bee colonies by providing support, expertise, training, material, coordination and manpower.
Developing the “The total beekeeping solution”:
We start deploying beehives and bee colonies in farming communities around the world.
But it won’t stop there.
Training, adapted fertilizers (bio fertilizers), continuous support are provided to make each project a success.
The added value for the communities are:
- Increased revenues as a result of higher crop yield due to a better pollination.
- Extra revenues from the sale of the bee products.
- Healthier environment with the use of bio fertilizers.
- Better quality of life because of increased revenues.
All these actions are coordinated by BeeValues.
