We put up posters to inform people about pollinators and the pollination process. 25.6.18
Pollinator Survey. We have seen an increase in bees. Not sure why we haven’t had quite so many insects during our 2018 survey as we did in 2017. Could be down to weather conditions on the day or more seriously because of the decline of these species. We all need bees. Will you help us? We would love volunteers to help us garden and maintain our grounds.
Lovely donation of a bug hotel from a parent. Thank you. 25.6.18
