Sunday 8 May, 2.30pm, 3.30pm and 4.30pm
Join Alison Benjamin from Urban Bees for a bee’s eye view of the flowers, trees and shrubs on a bee tour of Dalston Curve Garden. Alison describes the connection between bees and plants:
“They provide a smorgasbord of delights for the docile wild bees living in Hackney: from hairy-footed flower bees, to large bumblebees, tiny solitary bees and even ‘cuckoo’ bees“.
The bee tours will help you learn about why wild bees are so important, fascinating facts about bees, and the simple steps you can take to help support them.
There will be three bee tours taking place throughout the afternoon at 2.30pm, 3.30pm or 4.30pm. There’s no booking required, but spaces will be limited so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
