Bee in on the action with the Great British Bee Count
The Great British Bee Count kicks off this month. Organised by Friends of the Earth, Buglife and Waitrose, the Count aims to build on the success of last year’s inaugural event, when over 23,000 people took part, spotting over 830,000 bees.
Gardeners are also being encouraged to take easy steps to make their gardens more bee-friendly, and help provide crucial havens for our threatened pollinators.
Head of Sustainability at Waitrose, Quentin Clark said: “We're committed to protecting pollinators like bees, and this summer we will also be promoting pollinator-friendly plants in our shops. People who work at Waitrose take real pride in supporting the environment, and we are delighted to support The Great British Bee Count.”
