Bees for Development Fundraising Event

Thank you to WDBKA member Sally Beeson and friends who raised ยฃ146.22 for Bees for Development on Saturday morning, 7th May.ย 20160507_091133


It was a lovely warm Saturday market-day in Bridport and the plant stall generated quite a bit of interest.ย  It was good to have leaflets available as there were a few people very interested in the work ofย Bees for Developmentย .


Surplus plants were donated for sale by local gardeners who always sow more seeds than they need and can’t bare to let them go to waste! The plants are labelled as they are brought in to avoid confusion. It’s a good opportunity to share growing advice and to try out new varieties. A satisfying way to spend a lovely sunny morning in the town.



Children were invited to get involved by potting up seeds and small plants to take away and nurture at home. Hopefully they will eventually enjoy eating their home grown produce.

This was a great event to promote healthy options for both humans and bees!
