Our fuzzy black and yellow friends are vital to our well-being as they pollinate the plants that we grow for food. But our British bees are in crisis. Their population is dwindling at an alarming rate – under attack from viruses, pesticides and mites.
Adopt-a-hive is where you can make a real difference.
You can help start a new bee colony by buying a year long, 1/12 share in a hive for only £29.99, with the option to maintain your involvement in the project for a longer term at a reduced rate. Click here to renew your subscription for £24.99.
In return you’ll receive a special shareholder certificate, some lovely flower seeds to attract more bees to your garden and 1lb of yummy honey made especially for you, by your bees as a “thank you”.
Adopt-a-hive makes the perfect gift for nature lovers, keen gardeners and honey monsters everywhere. As well as being a unique present you’ll be helping to pollinate the planet and ensuring the future, not only of our little buzzing buddies but also all the essential fruits and vegetables we currently enjoy.
Its time to act! Find out more here.
