Bracha Haviv proposes Workshop for building modular bee nests

 

Designer Bracha Haviv devises a workshop for modular nests for wild bees, raising awareness of bee decline in nature. Nestincity, a platform focusing on wild bees, sheds light on their vital role and offers crucial aid for their survival in both natural landscapes and urban settings. The declining wild bee population, driven by the competition for nectar and pollen resources, habitat loss, and habitat destruction, underscores the urgency.

nestincity sheds light on bee decline through a creative process

 

Through the innovative process of casting soil into dynamic molds, participants in the workshop, along with designer Bracha Haviv, will craft diverse nests for wild bees. This endeavor not only brings attention to the decline of bees but also engages participants in a hands-on, creative experience. The resulting bee habitats will be integrated into community gardens, contributing to the augmentation of pollinator populations.
