We’re celebrating our pollinators! 

Almost 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops depend on animal pollination.

One out of every three mouthfuls of our food depends on pollinators such as bees.

Today is World Bee Day and we’re celebrating the contribution they make to nature and food chains.

Alison is joining us from ‘Patchwork Meadow’.

We’ll start with a short, just for fun, bee quiz and then hear more about the work Alison does in our local community.

Alison will demonstrate how to make seed bombs and then we’ll have a go! Materials and seeds provided.

There’s a ‘bee friendly’ raffle – tickets are £1 each or 3 for £2, the draw will take place during the event.

Please bring along an empty egg box to take your seed bombs home.

PLEASE NOTE: The venue has toilet facilities but does not have electricity so you may wish to bring along a hot drink in a flask or travel mug. There will be a small selection of cold refreshments and of course……honey cake!
