The Bosavern Community Bee Garden and Bee Ed-Shed is being built between March and October with a grant from Grow Wild UK – through Kew Gardens.
The project is to enable young people to connect with nature through the sowing of native wildflowers.
Something’s buzzing at Bosavern
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.
In 2015 an ambitious community project created imaginative individual areas within the bee garden- among them a living wall mural and a huge herb hexagon which is buzzing with pollinators during the Summer. A wildlife gardening group meets every Monday morning to maintain the garden and create wildlife friendly habitats. Turn up and 10am and join in!
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.
We have invited local business, trades people and individuals to support our bee-education centre to help make it a really special community asset.
Many thanks to our sponsors for their valuable support:
- Wilkins & Company Estate Agents, St.Just
- JM Landscaping and Maintenance
- Vision Arts Tin
