Did you know that the majority of bees are queen-less, don’t produce honey and don’t live in colonies or hives? These bees are called solitary bees, and we have over 250 different species in the UK. To help support populations of solitary bees in your garden you can create your own bee hotel where you can watch the life cycle of these fascinating creatures.

Learn how to make your own bee hotel using recycled materials and where’s best to locate it in your garden or balcony. Learn more on our fab Project Pollinate competition, being run in partnership with the Eco Attractions Group, to design and create your own Pollinator Palaces! If possible, please bring your own empty bottles.

Courses run at 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm in the Canolfan Tyfu classrooms.

*Please note that short courses do not include Garden entry. Please see here for information on admission prices.
