Swarm to Ness Gardens

The future of the UK bee population is under threat. On Sunday 13th March, Ness Gardens are hosting a full day of bee activities to support the ‘Save our Bees’ campaign as part of National Science and Engineering Week.

You will be able to test your navigation skills in the 'Bee-line' orienteering course, plant bee-friendly flower seeds in plant pots of your own creation, explore the world of honey through your tastebuds with honey sampling, learn all about the many different bee species from local experts, and much more.

Ness gardens staff will also be installing hives on the day which will be home to new bee colonies. These bees will collect pollen and nectar from Ness’s award-winning bee garden.

Buzz on down to this family friendly event and learn what you can do to help the bees before its too late...
