You can help save our pollinators
Join with us as we explore the many intrigues and peculiarities of bees and beekeeping over the next four weeks.
We’ve teamed up with NZ Gardener and are calling on all our readers to take part in Plan Bee. You can start by grabbing a copy of the Gardener and planting the free seeds you’ll get with each copy. Once you’ve sown your beefriendly patch, get online and register on the interactive map.
We’d like to see ours become the most bee friendly region in the country.
If you haven’t got some dirt to spare, you can get involved in the great bee hunt. Grab your smart phone and a sunny day and go count bees. You’ll be an expert in no time.
And if you know of a feral hive, Plant & Food Research want to know about it.
Over the next few weeks we’ll bring you plenty of information about local beekeepers, how you can help save the bees, businesses you can support and places you can go for more information.
We’ll even tell you how you can build your own beehive or install a community hive in a greenspace near you. Don’t let the issue bre too big. Everyone can play a small part in bringing back the bees. So what are you waiting for? ‘Bee’ involved, grab your NZ Gardener, and ‘bee’ useful!
Welcome to Plan Bee.
Throughout September we’ll give you the the information you need to bee friendly.
