The bees are coming.
here's the latest from the Worthing Honey Collective.
After seeking advice from our resident beekeeper Tony, we have now got a "delivery date" for our native bee nuclei that we will pick up from our local bee farmer Roger at the end of next month.
Thanks to your support we have not only ordered our own bees, but have now also selected our first hives and equipment so we can get started from the moment the bees arrive in Worthing at the end of June.
We have had a lot of interest already of local school and arts groups wanting to get involved, and we will be sending out dates for our bee-friendly walks very shortly. Thanks to Kew's "Grow Wild" scheme and the Polli:Nation biodiversity and education project, we have also been given some fantastic resources to share information about beefriendly environments for people of all ages.
We will also set up a monthly study group for novice beekeepers and those who are interested in beekeeping here in Worthing, to which any new members are very welcome to come along to.
We would also like to continue sending you information about the Worthing Honey Collective and our other projects at FoodPioneers, such as our "Summer of Seaweed" ID and cookery programme, via our newsletters. If you'd rather not receive those just let us know.
More from us very soon - we'll buzz off for now.
Anne, Debs and everyone at FoodPioneers x
