Bodnegg enterprises are protecting species diversity
Wild flower meadow covering an area the size of seven football pitches
In Bodnegg-Kofeld everything was buzzing and humming. Three Bodnegg enterprises are the sponsors. A wildflower meadow was created on an area of five hectares, providing food for insects and wild animals and living space for ground-breeding birds such as the skylark.
But that wasn’t enough: once such plants as sunflowers, sweet clover, fennel, wild carrot and knapweed had finished flowering in late summer, these were handed over as mown and chopped ecological biomass to a biogas operator. The two managing directors, Oliver Kühn from bellissa HAAS GmbH and Hans-Peter Blum from HAS Technologie GmbH, didn’t take long to agree when the agricultural operator Klaus Sterk knocked on the door with his idea for this project. Also acting as the managing director of the STERK Group, he had already been working on the project for the biogas wildflower meadow for months.
