Weald of Kent Beekeepers show – Sat 10th Sept

Weald Beekeepers Branch, KBKA (Kent Beekeepers Association)

bee-keepers Over the last decade most people have become aware that bees are in trouble worldwide and there are real concerns about how fruit and other food crops, let alone wild species, will be pollinated in the future. Because of this growing awareness, many want to know what they can do to help. Fortunately, there are many ways and our honey show, on 10 September in the Cranbrook Vestry Hall, 10 am to 3.30pm, will be a great way to learn more.

An important way to help honey bees, bumble bees and other pollinators is to grow bee friendly plants in your garden, patio or even in a window box. Not only will you be doing your bit, it will make your garden look great, with an abundance of blooms and fragrance. There will be a range of bee friendly plants for sale at the show plus information on the types of plants that are most beneficial. Many solitary bees do invaluable work pollinating a wide variety of plants and you can help them by providing a nest box or two; these will also be on sale at the honey show.

You could decide to become a beekeeper yourself, keeping a hive or two in your garden. You can chat to knowledgeable beekeepers about what you’ll need to get started. Joining a beekeeping group like ours is a great way to learn more, get help and advice, and to meet other beekeepers.

bee-image The Weald Beekeeping Branch meets once a month, in winter for talks and presentations, and in summer at members’ apiaries. We also have a group apiary where there are regular gatherings throughout the year. We are a friendly, welcoming group and our teas are legendary.
Go to www.wealdbeekeepers.org to find out more and become a member, or pick up a membership form at our Honey Show.
