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.

Millennium Square Bulb Planting Session!!

This session at the Urban Allotments in Millennium Square will focus on bulb planting! Now I know that bulbs aren’t edible but with bees now residing on the roof at At Bristol, as well as in several other locations along the Urban Food Trail, what they do provide is early forage for our precious pollinators early in the year when very little is about.

We will be concentrating on turning the bed under the Solar Tree into a spring time meadow of colours made entirely from bulbs, all of which have been donated by Almondsbury Garden Centre!

Come along and help us prepare for the season ahead!!

A slightly sad update on our Edible Park

Sadly we have to announce that the bees and their beautiful hive that were in the Edible Park at the Quakers Burial Ground, have had to be, temporarily we hope, rehomed to a safer space. This is due to vandalism of the hive which obviously seriously compromises the safety of our bees and so had […]

Pollinators Poll: Wildflowers v Wasteland?

So we’ve been talking through various ideas, aims and project plans for 2015. Many of these are simply about continuing and expanding what we started this year, but some (to do with Pollinators and the Pollination story) involve new ideas and initiatives that we’d love to see happen. We have a chance now to apply for a small […]
