Woman’s Hour Radio 4

Bees in the City is officially published today and Alison was interviewed by the great Jenni Murray on Woman’s Hour this morning about urban  beeekeeping.  You can listen to it here. Emphasised that you don’t have to keep honeybees to save bees, just have a pile of leaves for bumblees to make their nest and attach bamboo canes to a sunny wall for solitary bees to lay their eggs. Thought she’d ask if men and women took different approaches to beekeeping and when’s the best age to get children involved, but she seemed more concerned about the neighbour’s kids getting stung. Oh well, let’s hope it helps to spread  understanding about the importance of  bees for pollination.
