The Nectar Sector had heard about the UK’s declining bee population and decided they wanted to help. Farm Africa would like to thank Avonbourne College, and especially the Nectar Sector, for this wonderful project.

Avonbourne hive profits support bee-keeping project in Ethiopia.

The decline in the honey bee population due to pesticides, the Varroa mite, interbreeding and stress could farmers £1.8 billion a year to pollinate our crops, so by introducing hives to the area and helping with our petition to increase protection for bee species, this will help not only the local but possibly the national economy. Apart from honey production, we rely on bees to produce three quarters of the world’s most important crops. So the people of Bournemouth will be able to purchase Nectar Sector honey but in addition the project will help secure the food supply for local residents. The overall aim of the project is to increase understanding and create a fruitful, symbiotic relationship between students, residents and bees in our town.

The project was also celebrated by the Bournemouth in Bloom team at the council offices.
