Thanks to funding from Grow Wild at Kew Gardens, we’re going to be building an Education Apiary and Bee-Ed-Shed at Bosavern Community Farm in 2016. This will include an observation hive so that visitors, school groups and budding bee-keepers can take a look inside a working bee hive to watch these fascinating and important insects at work.

We will be creating a bee garden behind our barn to encourage, shelter, and nurture these important pollinators.
