CSA Winner 2015

Joint winners of the Cornwall Sustainability Awards 2015 in the category “Best Contribution to a Sustainable Food Economy – From Nature to Plate”.

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.

Get involved!

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.

Get involved with our bee education centre supported by Kew Garden and Grow Wild

Partners

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.

  • Planting chillies
    Unfortunately for the bees some of those plants were then pulled out and composted to make way for this year's chilli plants (but there are kale and cabbage plants in the fields, and more salad and oriental-green flowers in the other tunnels). Today we planted 76 "ring of fire" chillies (grown from our own seed, […]
  • Bees in the Mothership
    Two of our polytunnels are bursting with the edible salads of bolting salad plants, and bees are loving them so much that the polytunnels are buzzing when you walk past. This is a very good reason to leave old brassica plants to flower in the spring, as they are such a valuable source of pollen […]
