To ensure we have a healthy world for our children to inherit and grow up in, we must make conscious decisions and actions to do what we can to support nature, rather than continually taking from or using it.
“It’s important to support nature and bees in our cities so that we are working in harmony and it keeps us connected to the essentials of life in our busy built-up environments,” says Jessie.
Bees need our help to survive, as there are a lot of diseases killing them such as varroa and AFB. Urban areas are safe places for bees, where they typically do better in terms of honey production compared to on farms.
They often have an advantage over their country cousins as there’s more food for them in town because of all the city parks and all the different gardens. Gardens in the city also aren’t as heavily sprayed as in the country. They also love catching the morning sun, so having them high up above buildings is the perfect place for them to be.
If you are in West Lynn this spring, look up above Nature Baby to see the beehive and bees launching off to pollinate and gather the sweet neighbourhood nectar.
