Studies show that bumblebees and other pollinators in cities also benefit the vegetative surroundings. It is therefore important that we maintain these lively populations, that today are declining. Bumblebees are affected by air pollution making it harder for them to find flowers in the cities.
Scenter is a growing kit that makes it easier to cultivate flowers for bumblebees and other pollinators in the urban area. By growing vertically it is possible to fit more plants in a small space like a balcony. The kit is accompanied with information about how you should grow the flowers to help the bumblebees find food through out the season.
The project was created in collaboration with Reidar Pritzel from an assignment from the royal swedish academy of sciences and displayed at Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm 2019.
