If you live within striking distance of the National Beekeeping Centre Wales, there are a number of ways you can help the bees. We’re always looking for volunteers to help in the Visitor Centre, at events and shows that we attend as well as at our courses or working directly with the bees in our apiary. You can contact our Visitor Centre and Volunteer Supervisor, Keith Arnold on 01492 651106, email him or call in and introduce yourself.
If you don’t have time to volunteer you can still help by making sure that you call in for some of our lovely honey, bee product based natural cosmetics and bee gifts.
Wherever you live, as long as you have a garden or space for a few pots, you can always help bees by being a bee-friendly gardener. Avoid the use of pesticides in your garden and allow a weed corner - let’s face it – we all have one! Here’s your excuse to leave it be and let the bees forage in it – you’ll be surprised how many you’ll see there. Find out which plants bees like best and do your best to plant a range of things that flower at the extremes of the seasons.
