Bee Friendly Zones


Copied from theTransitionTownTotnes Newsletter 65 – April 2012


Bee Friendly Zones with Bridgit Strawbridge [‘it isn’t easy being green series] and Phil Chandler author of ‘The Barefoot Beekeeper’ and an internationally recognized exponent of natural beekeeping.

We are really pleased that Brigit Strawbridge from the BBC2 series ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green’ and a passionate campaigner for all types of bees, will be speaking alongside Totnes’ own Phil Chandler.



Honeybees are vital to our way of life

We’ve all heard about the threat to honey bees from colony collapse disorder but few people realize that Bumble Bees and hundreds of other essential pollinating insects are also under threat from pesticides, declining habitats and the loss of biodiversity in our towns and countryside.

Brigit and Phil will be outlining the problems but also explaining just what we can do, in our own gardens, allotments, streets and communities, to create Bee Friendly Zones. Not to be missed…
