Wildflower Meadow Project at Stahlwerk Thüringen

Steel that carries sustainably!

On Monday, 24 April 2023, the pupils of class 2a of the music focused primary school in Kamsdorf created a flower meadow for native wild bees and insects on our company premises.

Near our steel plant storage bunker, along the cycle path of the federal road 281, a 500 m² lawn was prepared thus enabling the children to sow the wildflower mixture.

Furthermore, nesting and retreat opportunities were created for insects and wild bees in the form of dead wood and shrub islands. This action was carried out in cooperation with the Beekeeper Association Saalfeld 1903 e.V., the municipality of Unterwellenborn, Landschaftspflege Köhler and TK Agrarberatung.

We enjoyed this very nice morning and hope that the weather will cooperate and the seeds to germinate quickly so that we, as well as cyclists and walkers, can soon admire the first flowers and the bees and insects could settle.

We would like to express our appreciation to everyone involved for the great commitment and the very good cooperation in all phases of the project!

Glück auf!
