Creating a buzz on Don’t Step On A Bee Day

Bee populations are under siege from habitat loss, disease, invasive plants and the use of pesticides. With a beekeeper in our ranks, we took action a year ago towards creating a sustainable future for our pollinating friends by installing two planters filled to the brim with bee-friendly plants. While it won’t solve the wider issue, the planters provide bees with nectar and pollen in an area that was once just a brick pathway. Find out why bees are in decline and what you can do to help in our infographic below.
