We’ve teamed up with family-run Wild Wales Seeds and the Wildlife Trust of South West Wales to deliver a wealth of wildflower colour to green spaces.
In support of our environmental commitments, we’ll be distributing free wildflower seeds to primary schools that we work with across Wales and the South West of England. The seeds, for planting in Spring or Autumn, will grow to attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators which have been declining in numbers for the last 30 years.
Pollination is a vitally important ecosystem service and pollinators play a key role in the food and farming industries, so it’s paramount that we adapt a strategy to support this, whilst at the same time utilising the educational aspect for young learners.
Contracts Manager, Angharad Davies said ‘’This is a great opportunity to highlight the importance of bees as natural pollinators, and by getting the pupils involved in creating their own wild meadow outdoor spaces in schools they can have a place to watch, discover and learn, and most importantly have fun.”
As we head through Spring and into Summer, we’re looking forward to seeing the results of the campaign, which has brought together different sectors for such an important environmental cause.
