June 29, 2010
Just to remind you that next weekend, 3&4th July is Warwickshire Artsweek and the meadow is part of that event. If you would like to meet us, Wendy and I will be on site from 10:00am to 3:00pm both days and from 10:00am to 1:00pm on Tuesday 6th July.
We have some willow so if you want to try your hand at skep making come and give it a go. We also expect Roger Wilkes who is responsible for one of the bee hives on site to attend on Sunday, so he is your man if you have bee related questions. The WI have given us some interesting leaflets about saving bees with some yummy recipes for bee related food (that is foods pollinated or made by bees, not foods made from bees!)
Local resident June from Galliard has very kindly distributed leaflets about the event and how to keep safe around bees, so thank you very much June and look forward to seeing you at the weekend.
The only sad thing is that we are still waiting to hear from the Council where we can place the sculpture so there is a question mark over whether it will be up or not. So, fingers crossed.
Wendy and I thought you might like to know that the Tocil Bee Habitat Project is now officially part of the International Year of Biodiversity 2010.
Wendy and I wrote informing them of the project and asking how to get involved with the IYB and they said that our project was brilliant and that we were in. They have asked for photos and are putting a piece on their website later this week – the piece includes all work relating to the honey bee.
So, go and have a look on www.biodiversityislife.net
(But leave it until next week)
