Creating a buzz in Devon’s Churchyards: Workshop

The Bee Barn, Buckfast Abbey
Buckfastleigh, Devon

Saturday 15 September
9.30am – 12noon

There has been a dramatic decline in bee populations which is the result of multiple factors such as loss of habitat, diseases and parasites, climate change and wider industrial agricultural practices.

Churchyards are a haven for all types of bees: bumble bees, solitary bees and honey bees, and giving a new twist to the Biblical phrase ‘land of milk and honey’, some churches are now establishing beehives in their churchyards.

If you would like to create a buzz in your churchyard, you are invited to attend our workshop.
