Want to “be the Green” in Denmark? Here some sites to get you started for thriving biodiversity in your garden.

Amager Village just organised a biodiversity event at Taarnby bibliotek along with two great associations where each talked about how to save the wilds bees and to look after honey bees, we ended up the event teaching participants how to build a bee hotel (see bottom of the article for tutorials)

These key associations were:

  1. Wild Bier i Danmark You will find loads of information about the association and the work they do on their website to save wild bees
  2. Amager Bi (called Tarnby Bi before) (previoulsy called Taarnby Bi) – If you want to become a beekeeper, they organise theory and practical courses in Danish.

Many other associations/organisations helped us by providing sample of their products or information on their associations.
