Millennium Square Work Party

Our Millennium Square beds are starting to be filled with exciting crops but we are not the only creatures that we need to ensure can find plenty to eat, so on Thursday we will be creating a pollinator friendly garden underneath the solar tree.

We will be planting a range of bee and the pollinator friendly plants which we will continually add to over the next few months to ensure that there is always a food source for these creatures throughout the entire year.

And why? Well we need our crops pollinated but we also need to make sure the bees on At Bristol’s roof have plenty of forage for the year ahead so we can have some honey!!

All welcome but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
