This Saturday Camden Friends of the Earth will be buzzing about bees at the Belsize Green Fair in Belsize Park!

Come along and join a bee walk – at 12 and 2pm we’ll be taking a stroll around Belsize looking at three bee-friendly sites: St Peter’s Church ‘Fruitery’ in Belsize Park (features an insect hotel), Premier Inn in Belsize Park, and the Royal Free Hospital Heath Strange Garden.  Hear from Transition Belsize on how they have made these sites bee-friendly.  Meet at the Transition Belsize stall (next to the Camden Friends of the Earth stall!) at 12 or 2pm.

Check out our bee cause stall from 10-4pm, and find info on how to be bee-friendly, bee-friendly plants, and sign our petition asking the government for a national bee action plan.

Enter our bee hotel competition on our stall – bring along a design for a bee hotel (either one you’ve made, or on paper), and you could win a copy of Bees in the City and some bee-friendly flower seeds.
