Welcome to my urban beekeeping project. Out of the freedom to put bee colonies on unused roofs of urban buildings, the passion to produce special honey was born. In my search for a deeper relationship with nature, mainly through beekeeping, I came across many answers (and even more questions). The dialogue with bee colonies enriches and inspires and acts as a fountain of life. Close up and right in the middle seems the precious experience of the encounter. Beekeeping is filled with unexplored and unexpected moments that not only carry a mystery but also nurture the soul with simple joy.

I started Stadtbienenhonig (city bee honey) in 2004 on the roofs of Berlin. Since the beginning of 2021 Stadtbienenhonig continues in Rome, Italy, as Miele di Città

Giving the bee colonies under my care the space they need to develop themselves, to develop into their wildness, is the priority principles of my beekeeping technique. The care shall be primarily supportive. I want them to develop out of themselves, to build up a folk knowledge, to stay with me over many years and, in the best case, to keep rejuvenating themselves - all with the least direct encounter. They live in a place that provides them the abundance of flower nectar, pollen and water they need, while guaranteeing their protection from enemies. The honey I harvest is only a surplus. I always take only a small part of it, only honey that ripens in the specially created cells. This is a game with singularities.

The interweaving of the bees' flight lines, which takes place in the high air, reflects in a certain way an interweaving of social contacts that arise in urban space. There are overlaps and interfaces. The advantage in urban space is that of a diversity of people. The intersection of people with good taste is high, as is the growing interest in locally produced food, which brings more and more people together and fosters new communities. A direct connection between producer and consumer allows not only the sharing of a high quality product, but also the sharing of the stories that go into its production. The stories will connect us to the natural. Beekeeping today is facing great challenges. It is about developing a contemporary approach to beekeeping that focuses on the health of the bee colonies, activates their self-healing power and recognises the local honey yield as a luxurious natural product. Honey not only reflects the diversity of the landscape but it is also a carrier of moods. This is why every honey harvest has its own taste and no two years are the same.

We are the bees of the invisible. We passionately bring in the honey of the visible in order to accumulate it in the great golden hive of the invisibile. Rainer Maria Rilke
