GBKA is always keen to visit schools and other groups such as Gardening Groups, WI’s, Lunch and U3a groups and even businesses to spread the word about Honeybees and other pollinators.
With 75% of all crops requiring pollination by insects, and with the Honey Bee among the most important of these, it’s never been more important that everyone understands the vital role that pollinators play – and what we can all do to ensure their survival.
In 2020 in the 3 months before lockdown we managed to visit 6 schools reaching nearly 1000 children to tell them how fascinating and important honeybees are. We believe that the more information children and adults have about the role of pollinators the better decisions we can make about our future.
We have a team of enthusiastic presenters who will visit you, bring equipment with them (sometimes live bees in an observation hive, depending on the season) and give you an insight into these remarkable creatures and the ways you might be able to help stop their decline.
Alternatively, we can present via Zoom for those who prefer to remain at home.
If you are interested in finding out how you can arrange to have a talk, please contact: [email protected] for more information.
There is normally no charge for talks although a donation is always welcome.
