Bee Project: The Potter Bees
Creating a BUZZ!
We are currently in the process of getting honey bees on Richmond Street Allotments. This is an exciting new project for our allotment site and is a significant commitment to improving our wildlife area.
The wildlife area is being re-newed / refreshed and the aim is for it to be a haven for bees and other local wildlife. Bees will love our allotment site as it is on a slope and from the top they will have a fantastic flight path, so they can buzz about Stoke with ease!
