Honey fans, have we got news for you! The city’s beekeeping business Nectarist brings you the taste of honey. With his home-made honey, Greek loukoumades and all kinds of delights from the bee kingdom, Johan is the honey hero of De Vleeshalle.
As the city’s beekeeper, Johan is an unusual person. But actually it makes sense to keep bees in the city. That’s because cities provide an ideal habitat for bees. There is always something in bloom in a city’s parks and gardens. Monoculture is making it harder for the bees to survive in the countryside. Since 2015, cities and large organisations have been banned from using pesticides in public areas. And that’s great for bees!
