Axis Parc - Flowers forest

Blooming meadows

A blooming meadow, in collaboration with Ecosem, Incredible Company and Alliance Centre BW. Blooming meadows are spaces that combine annually flowering plants and exclusively native perennial species. This type of mix is particularly beneficial for our pollinating species and is a ‘solid step’ towards safeguarding our biodiversity. In addition to helping nature, this blooming meadow offers beauty and poetic surroundings for walkers.

Ecoflorist Il Était Une Fleur...

A project run by Il Était Une Fleur, which grows its flowers 100% naturally, without chemicals and in a way that protects the soil and water resources. They grow according to the natural seasonal cycle and in the open air, for your pleasure and that of the insects. Insect- and seed-eating birds also benefit from this way of growing flowers. All the bouquets sold to businesses and individuals are made with these flowers and those of eco-friendly growers within a 30km radius, ensuring a local supply chain.

The BeeXperience apiary

Axis Parc is home to a year-round apiary with two hives, in collaboration with BeeXperience. Axis Parc’s goal is to inform its occupants and visitors about the declining population of pollinating insects and biodiversity, which is essential for us. To this end, BeeXperience organises ‘Team-building’ events on the basis of its hives, aimed at anyone who wants to discover this vibrant world that is so crucial for mankind.

This open-air activity is offered to groups of up to ten people and is available between 15 April and 15 September. All protective equipment is provided to participants.

The forest as sanctuary

An area created by Urban Forest to resemble the indigenous forest as it would be without human activity. It would normally take around 200 years for such a forest to develop on its own. With the Miyawaki method a similar result is achieved in 20 years! This method draws inspiration from the mechanisms and diversity of nature: 15 to 30 native tree and shrub species are planted in the same forest. These species thrive together and are perfectly adapted to the site’s climate conditions. The habitat gradually becomes more complex and forms a magnificent ecosystem in balance with the soil and climate conditions, leading to an increase in biodiversity.
