Did you know that?

Over the last century, hedgerows have been destroyed to make way for large agricultural fields. And yet they are crucial to a habitat’s biodiversity, as they store carbon, provide shelter and help maintain consistent ecosystems where bees and other pollinators thrive. We want your help to start a new project to build melliferous or honey-producing hedges that provide food for bees, other pollinators and animal species too, including birds and local wildlife.

We are currently planting 285 metres of hedgerow in our own Berné forest. This honey-producing hedge will feature more than 280 plants, trees and shrubs, including borage, hazelnut, rowan, field maple, arbutus and delicious wild cherry.The plants will vary in size and be suitable for the local soil and climate. We will choose species that consistently flower over several seasons, providing bees, other pollinators, birds and local fauna with a constant source of food throughout the year.

Our actions

Plant the hedge

We plant more than 280 plants, trees and shrubs, including buckthorn, hazel, rowan, field maple, arbutus and cherry.

Install mulch and collars

We apply mulch to protect, retain moisture and nourish the soil by creating humus. Our team also attach collars to competing vegetation, which keep it under control and allows the new hedge to thrive.
