How to Make a Nest for Bees Demonstration/Talk
Sunday 9th October – 2pm – 4.30pm
St Denys Community Centre
Honey Bees are suffering huge loses Worldwide!
We need to help our Solitary Garden Bees to pollinate our garden & allotment fruit, vegetables & flowers.
They are very docile & do not normally sting.
They do not live in hives!
Their habitat was mainly rotten logs & old lime mortar walls which have been reduced as we achieve our neat & tidy gardens.. now they are desperate for our help to give them nesting sites.
This talk & demonstration will show you how to make nesting boxes from recycled materials and the plants that will encourage these cute bees to your garden.
Just add a few nesting boxes & a few bee-friendly flowers to increase their numbers, before we lose them!
You can still have a neat garden & help the bees!

We’ll be giving our wildflower seeds and fluffy bees, thanks to The Cooperative.
