The Bees of Benham is a Jubilee celebration event that is an opportunity for residents and community groups to come together to understand what pollinators we have in our community and how we can support them, explore land use and find out how it is used by us as well as pollinators, and how we can make better use of it for all. By improving our environment and supporting the pollinators that are in our community we want to make it a better place not just for us but future generations living in our community.
This project launch at the Comfrey Project on the 5 June 11-3pm, will involve creative activities, bee and nature walks, food, music and opportunities to explore the allotment and garden at the Comfrey Project. You will find out about the things you can do to help the environment, as well socialise, meet other residents and have fun. There is no need to book, just drop in
There will be an opportunity to be creative with lead artist Barbara Keating and members of the Comfrey Project to make a Queen bee; go on a bee and nature walk and find out about the bees in our community with the National History Society of Northumbria; explore the One Small Change roadshow and go on an Earthwalk with Climate Action North East; and find out how you can get involved in the project over the next two years working with us and artist and beekeeper Barbara Keating to improve the community we live in for the future.
