Devon Living Churchyards Project Workshop 2018

Date: 15th September 2018
Time: 9.30am-12noon
Venue: The Bee Barn, Buckfast Abbey

CREATING A BUZZ IN DEVON’S CHURCHYARDS!

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. See attached poster for details.
