Daejeon Launches Rooftop Bee Farm Initiative


DAEJEON, May 4 (Korea Bizwire)The city of Daejeon said Friday it will operate city bee farms on the rooftops of four government buildings until July.

Bee farms will be set up on the rooftops of Daejeon Metropolitan City Hall, the Institute of Health and Environment of Daejeon Metropolitan City, Chungnam National University and the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute.


The city plans to produce acacia and wildflower honey two to three times at the rooftop bee farms and donate it to a local food bank or use it to promote the region.

“If honeybees increase the speed of flower bloom, other insects and birds will also be introduced to restore the ecosystem,” a city official explained.
