How can I help our bees? ...🐝🐝
Did you know about a third of our food wouldn't be here without bees and other pollinators? A recent report however, states that one in every ten species of wild bees face extinction!
Their decline can be directly linked to intensive farming, use of pesticides and urbanisation causing a loss of their natural habitats.
Since the 1930's we've lost 97% of our wildflower meadows - so vital for pollinators!
Whether you have a window box, large garden or allotment, sow some wildflower seeds and, in return, the bees 🐝 will pollinate the flowers, fruit, crops and vegetables!
