Nurseries are Busy Saving Bees
Busy Bees nurseries have been helping to save Britain’s Bees by sponsoring The British Beekeepers Association’s ‘Adopt a Beehive’ campaign.
Busy Bees have sponsored a beehive in an attempt to fund research into Honey Bee health, as well as education programmes for beekeepers. The campaign was developed after the population of UK bees fell dramatically due to a number of unconfirmed causes, such as disease, parasites, pollution and climate change.
Busy Bees launched their support for the cause at RHS Tatton Flower Show at the British Beekeepers Association’s garden display, which showcased the many different bee-friendly plants available.
At the event, children from Busy Bees Nurseries potted bee friendly plants to encourage the rest of the UK to do the same.
BBKA President Martin Smith, is delighted with our support, commenting "All young children are curions about the natural world and the Honey Bee has a particularly fascinating story. It’s particularly encouraging to see the children from Busy Bees Nursery here at Tatton doing their bit for the bee by joining our Adopt A Beehive campaign – after all these youngsters are the gardeners and beekeepers of the future!”
Busy Bees also showcased a garden at the event, based on the children’s classic, The Wizard of Oz. Children and staff from the nurseries were busy in the nursery gardens in preparation of the event, planting, watering and sowing seeds, as well as making models to enhance the garden’s colourful theme.
