British Bees

Talk organised by Bridport Gardening Club
On July 18, 2019 7:00pm - 9:00pm at WI Hall in North Street, Bridport

Brigit Strawbridge

Brigit will be discussing the importance of bees; the differences between Honeybees, Bumblebees and Solitary bees; the problems they all face (focussing on habitat loss and neonicotinoid pesticides) and what we can do to help them. She especially enjoys talking about the behaviour and life cycles of our native bumblebees and solitary bees, their roles as pollinators and their fascinating relationships with flowering plants.

She will also mention her Wildlife/Bee Garden and the importance of biodiversity.

She always tries to make her talks informative, interesting and inspiring – and always finishes on a positive note.
