Fight with the bees

Humanity’s food production depend on bees of various kinds pollunationg the crops. However, du the exaggerated use of pesticies, the bees are dying, causing the collapse of entire colonies.  

We have to actively do something to support bees. Therefore, we decided to do something about it and have embarked on our bee-keeping journey – to contribute in a small way to the safe guarding of bees. 

Over time we have researched a lot about bees. We have written about how to help break the depressing curve of bees dying and also prevent our own health to go with it. 

But it was time to take matters into our own hands. In cooperation with the rest of Lindersvold a Center for Plant Protection has been establish and the production of fruit and vegetables are going very well. Completely without pesticides and other poisons. In the winter a big beehive was built by students from the climate protection programme and this spring it will be ready for a bee family to move in.

Our large garden will be full of bee friendly places and more wildflowers and shrubs are left to grow wild on the premises to enhance a great environment – not only for bees, but for many useful insects.

The next step is for interested teachers and students to take courses in beekeeping.  

Greta and Luca have already built the first bee hive. 

A royal family moves in

In the first week of May we were lucky enough to receive our first family of bees – headed by a queen of course. We are honoured tod have  such royalty around!

Organic living, sustainability and biodiversity are values that we hold dear and a lot of our common time is spent looking after our gardens and animals. 

In this way, we are able to combine our theoretical studies with practical hands-on experience. 

To take care of bees is a science which we now have started to explore. We hope to let many people who pass through our campus share our excitement for bee-keeping. We are so happy about it. 

A structured gap year can be just what you need.



Lindersvold is an international learning center that facilitates courses in community development and certification in non-traditional pedagogy. Our Center provides an opportunity to learn about the big issues of our time while preparing to assist community-driven projects in Zambia, Malawi or Mozambique. We believe in combining hands-on training with theoretical knowledge, alongside community living, gives students the best foundation for working with sustainable development and vulnerable youth.

Protecting women during the pandemic

The corona crisis hits marginalised communities particularly hard, deepening inequalities and threatening to set us back in our efforts to leave no one behind. Women are disproportionately exposed to the coronavirus due to a number of reasons.

International Family Day

On International Family Day we wish to highlight some of the activities that our project partners do in order to support families and communities in these corona crisis times.
