LifeGate’s Bee my Future aims to support the maintenance of 8 apiaries thanks to an expert beekeeper hobbyist, selected by the Beekeepers’ Association of the Province of Milan (APAM). The beekeeper will be entrusted with the management of honeybees following organic farming principles. Apiaries are in fact located on the lands of the organic farm Azienda Agricola Biologica Terrafiera in Carugate, near Milan. It is the ideal place to protect bees from theft, which is always more frequent in Italy due to bees’ natural and economic value.
Lands cultivated with organic practices by Terrafiera ensure good health to our small, precious insects, which can thus pollinate in a healthy and safe environment.
Here you can find the profile of Marco Zucchetti and the images of the first months of work. The company Rigoni di Asiago has joined the project, becoming its first sponsor.
Who is Marco Zucchetti. He lives in the province of Milan, is 42, married and has 3 children. He works in a bank, in HR and technology, but his real passion is beekeeping. “I’ve always been fascinated by the world of bees. In 2005, by chance, I met a 75-year-old beekeeper who sold me 2 apiaries. I immediately realised that there was a whole brand new world to be discovered,” says Marco.
