I was contacted by a group of young people who have set up a
bee-themed enterprise, supplying solitary bee houses and more!
Everyone can find ways to help bees!
Here is what they had to say....
"We are a branch of Young Enterprise operating in Oxfordshire, Abingdon at the school of St Helen & St Katharine. We hope to bring people's attention to the plight of our bee population, by marketing products designed to protect the bees and to supply you with a new addition to your garden/home. The solitary bee is important, as the Honey Bee is suffering from Colony Collapse Disorder, where worker bees from a beehive or European honeybee colony abruptly disappear. The solitary bee is needed as a pollinator more than ever.
the solitary bee, we would have no flowers, fruit or vegetables, and a
quarter of the tomatoes, flowers or some animals! To save the bee, we
are selling eco-friendly products such as wooden bee houses, beeswax
candles and bee booklets that contain vital information, pictures and
recipes (like honeycomb and honey smoothies!).
Our website can be accessed here: buzzinye.tk"
It's always great to read about young people doing their bit to help bees.
