tips for saving the bees

We are celebrating everything Bee this month. Our buzzy little friends are very important in helping plants grow, breed and produce food. They do this by transferring pollen between flowering plants called pollination. We need bees to pollinate our crops, so that we have food such as apples and pears to coffee and vanilla. And if you are wearing cotton, that's because the cotton plant your threads came from was pollinated too!

But our bees are in trouble! With wild spaces becoming so hard to find the bees are losing their homes and food sources. Climate change is disturbing the plant life cycle, meaning the timing of flower blooming and the timing at which bees pollinate are different.

Our stripy friends need our help! Here are our 5 top tips to help your Mini Baker get involved in saving the bees, with the help of Friends of the Earth.

Plant a bee friendly garden

Like everyone bees have their favourite flowers. To attract more bees and make your garden healthy you should
consider planting some of
these beautiful flowers - Lavender,
Honeysuckle, Ivy and Wild Flowers.

Fundraise for a bee charity

Put your baking skills to use and hold a cake sale for Friends of the Earth or one of the many bee charities in the UK. Why don’t you make our No Bake Oreo Buzzy Bees?

Ditch the chemicals

Don’t use herbicides or weed killer as they
are harmful to bees.

Grow Herbs and Fruit

Bees love herbs and fruit  and so will your kids, when they are growing and picking them for themselves!

Make a bee hotel

Who doesn’t love going to hotels? Bee hotels  provide nesting sites for bees and are great fun to make and check up on. You can
also buy them ready made here.
