32 My today farm Situated in centre of France, I created my organic farm, 12 years ago to protect the current ecosystem Bees: my hives are settled close to orchads, meadow & forests, Forests: I planted 20 ha of nectar trees (Acacia, Chestnut, Lime) & I manage its, Medicinal herbal plants: I protect herbal plants to help my bees supporting naturally the potential diseases. Today I have 42 hectares 32

33 Beekeeping in France : Black Board French buys 41 tonnes of honey per year Production by french beekeepers : 16 tonnes per year 95% of Acacia Honey sold in France is from center of Europe : Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania 99% of sold royal jelly is from Middle east -- Turkey, Lebanon... 97% of beekeepers have 20 beehives and are in multi-activities 3% are in full time job - from 300 up to 500 beehives - no employee Each regions have from 1 up to 3 schools in beekeeping... students or for home farming 3 laboratories specialists in beekeeping : Bordeaux, Avignon, Sophia Antipolis and one selected to be the reference in Europe. 15 years ago, French has got the NDA of bee (the black) 33

34 Beekeeping in France : Black Board Beginning of 2015, South West (Toulouse, Bordeaux, les Pyrenees) have lost 90% of swarm due to pesticide In 1950, France was the leader in production of Lavender Honey - Due to sickness and insects, the production of lavender has decreased by 75% in France... Cosmetic Industries - Laboratories - Manufacturers of cake - they have from 1000 up to 5000 beehives on back of their chain The Future of beekeeping : - Supported by Government, Supported by kids - in urban area (no pesticide), no insect against them... - Beehives in industrial process... - Home farming for a personal production / development of schools - professional beekeeping will exist in country "low tax" + 34 great nature and climate

35 Exchanges Based on my current experience in beekeeping, I will be glad to help any Company to build a project of getting beehives on the roof of Shanghai buildings. Let start an exciting experience together, to build common projects How could we transform your Green ideas in concrete actions? How could we show to anybody that we protect dayly the bees? 35
