The Danish population of bees is dwindling, which may affect food chains and ecosystems. Therefore, Padborg Transport Centre and Aabenraa Municipality are currently in the process of spreading flower seeds at the side of the road on Omfartsvejen in Padborg.
Mikkel Bigum from Operations in Aabenraa Municipality says:
‘We were contacted by Padborg Transport Centre and the Danish Society for Nature Conservation, who encouraged us to establish bee-friendly areas. Therefore, Aabenraa Municipality has made an area in Padborg available, where we are sowing wild summer flowers of benefit to the bees in the area’.
The initiative goes hand in hand with the town council’s overall plan for Padborg, which aims to beautify the area and launch environmental initiatives.
