The theme for World Bee Day 2023 is: ‘Bee engaged in pollinator-friendly agricultural production.’ World Bee Day calls for global action to support pollinator-friendly agricultural production and highlights the importance of protecting bees and other pollinators, particularly through evidence based agricultural production practices.
Bees are crucial for ensuring our food security. Almost three quarters of the crops we eat depend on bees and other pollinators. However, many bee species and other pollinators are declining due to human-driven climate change.
Here in the UK May is a busy time for beekeepers who are tending their bees and watching them progress into strong colonies and often bringing in a spring honey crop depending on the weather and forage available.
Grow a bee friendly garden. Plant a range of flowers in your garden so bees have access to nectar from March to October

According to the UK Wildlife Trust, Honeybees are responsible for pollinating between 5-15% of the UK's insect-pollinated crops including most fruit, oilseed rape and many flowers. They, together with other pollinators are under threat from loss of habitat, disease and insecticide use.
So supporting two colonies of bees allows us to move from droning on about our CSR strategy to flying the flag for nature conservation.
