The project is to enable young people to connect with nature through the sowing of native wildflowers.
As bees are one of the planet’s top priorities right now we are creating a beautiful and buzzing bee garden- with beekeeping training apiary and a bee education shed which will house 2 observation hives where we can home happy bees and educate people about the links between flowers, pollinators, food and people.
It is an ambitious project with 6 imaginative individual areas within the garden- among them a living wall mural and a huge herb hexagon – ideally we are looking for 6 groups of young people (ages 11-25) to help with the creation and future upkeep of the area and adults to help lead.
We have several partners in the project already who have very generously offered to donate their time and skills to making the project extra special- and we are looking for a couple more- if you would like to become a partner and have specific skills or time to give then get in touch.
Throughout the project there will be intermittent events, meetings, talks, and of course lots of fun activities and outdoors work- we hope you will join us
