Bee Heard

If you haven’t already done so, do please sign Garden Organic’s “Bee Heard” petition.  Bees are essential to biodiversity and to our food and farming – but they are under threat, with 23 wild bees listed as priority species on the UK Biodiversity Action Plan, and a 53% decline in managed honeybee colonies since 1985.  So Garden Organic has teamed up with Friends of the Earth in calling for the government to adopt a National Bee Action Plan to protect our bees and ensure that our farms, gardens and public spaces support these vital pollinators.
