Put Bees Back in Beeston


raised so far



We want to create more wildlife-friendly planted spaces in the grey bits of Beeston, for nature and the local community to enjoy.

With the loss of habitats occurring everywhere, we're seeking to create more patches of urban habitat for nature - to providing small 'stop offs' for bees, birds, pollinators and invertebrates along the local wildlife corridor in Beeston.

Our formative project, on Wilmot Lane, was to improve a neglected road verge for nature and the local community . We created pollinator-friendly tyre planters; established a wildflower meadow full of native wild species; filled in gaps in the ancient held row, built a 'Bug Squat', Hedgehog Highway, and nearby bird, bat, and insect habitats.

How it started...


How it's going...


What's next?

Our latest project, #PuttingTheBeesInBeeston, is a collaboration with Beeston Street Art to create rooftop wildflower garden above the 'Beos Tun' mural by Qubek (nextdoor to the Arc Cinema, opposite Tesco).


What are we raising money for?

We really appreciate donations to help fund purchasing plants and sundries from nearby nurseries, local small businesses, makers and growers (such as Naturescape, Flower Barrow Beeston, Trowell Garden Centre, Bardill's Garden centre...).

If you'd prefer to donate plants, equipment, or your time we have a Plant +Sundries List as our pinned post on Facebook, alternatively, please just get in touch with us.
