In May 2019 working with local food growing charity Grounded community 6 Bee Hives were introduced to the roof of the Sovereign Shopping Centre. We now have Boscombe Bees that are producing Honey and Grounded Community are arranging talks and tours about our Bees.
We are also encouraging groups and locals to plant pollinating flowers and plants to keep the bees fed. Bees can travel up to 2 miles to get food, so Kings Park is in reach, but better if it is closer to home.
Interesting Bee Fact … in the winter the females(workers) kick all the men(drones) out of the hives and then they all die!! Heartless, but then the females do all the work and the men just hang about doing nothing…
WE NEED BEES and ants and butterflies and other creatures to pollinate our plants otherwise much of our fresh food will not grow.
So, help us take care of our bees and encourage new ones…
