Follow the buzz to the Botanic Garden's bee and pollination festival
The main exhibitors this year include the Avon Beekeepers Association annual honey festival, the University of Bristol School of Biological Sciences, Writhlington School Orchid project and Bristol City Council Allotments team. High quality nurseries will be selling insect friendly plants, and wildlife charities such as Bees for Development will also be exhibiting.
The highly popular demonstrations will range from beekeeping techniques and the workings of a live hive, to research projects about urban pollinators, how to build insect hotels and how to weave enchanting willow sculptures.
Entrance to the Botanic Garden £3.50
Free to Friends, children, University staff and students.
The event will be held Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September 10:00 until 17:00
