  • Description

    This rustic-style Bee House is designed for solitary bees to lay their eggs. Solitary bees are the unsung heroes of the pollinating world.  Unlike their more social cousins the honey bees which live in colonies of 20,000+, solitary bees live their lives largely on their own. And yet they play just as important a role in pollinating flowers as honey bees and are far easier to house.  Solitary bees lay their eggs in the spring in cavities or tubes and then seal the tubes with mud.  The following spring the new bees emerge and as they don’t have stores or a family to defend they have no need to sting.

    Available in three colourways, each Bee House is handcrafted by young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as part of an initiative run by the Pennyhooks Farm Trust. An organic beef farm nestled on the Oxfordshire/Wiltshire border, Pennyhooks Farm offers a range of work-based activities such as conservation, gardening, cooking, housekeeping, willow weaving and other crafts to children and young adults with the condition. This encourages the development of social and work skills such as being part of a team, listening and persevering, and practical skills. Under tutelage and guidance, older students produce garden furniture and smaller wood-work projects, generating confidence and independence, seeking to enable the 'inner person' to emerge.

    Choose from three colorways:

    Dark Green

    Light Green

    Oatmeal

     

    16cm x 33cm
