OUR FOOD DEPENDS ON BEES

Bees pollinate a whopping TWO THIRDS of our food production.

Most of the Fruit, Nuts, Vegetables, Seeds, and Livestock feed is dependant on the existence of Bees.

BEES AROUND THE WORLD ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE

They are more vulnerable to disease and pests through the overuse of pesticides, herbicides, and modern agricultural practices.
Human activity is reducing the habitat and food sources.

Some easy ways you can help…

Plant ‘bee friendly’ plants in clumps in your garden and let the vegetables flower. Bees love lavender, rosemary, sage, thyme, perennial basil and borage flowers.

Use no pesticides or herbicides in your garden. For ‘bee friendly’ pest management try companion planting.

‘Ask before you buy’ if plants have been treated with pesticides toxic to bees.

Buy local honey

Create ‘Bee Friendly’ Garden signs for your front garden to advertise what a ‘Bee Friendly’ garden is.

Put stones in bird baths to stop bees drowning

Buy organically and biodynamic produce which has been locally and sustainably grown.
