Creating a buzz about bees



They might not look like much now but these raised beds will soon be transformed into a wildflower haven for local bees.

St Aldhelm’s Academy is supporting the Friends of the Earth’s ‘Bee Cause’ campaign and will be planting wildflower seeds in these beds.

Once grown, they will create a colourful and long-lasting wildflower haven, providing vital food for threatened local bees.

The Friends of the Earth has provided the seeds and a commemorative plaque for the new bee garden. Since 1945 a devastating 97 per cent of our wildflower-rich meadows has been lost. As part of the Bee Cause campaign, Friends of the Earth has committed to creating 180 bee-friendly patches in towns and rural areas across the UK.
