Bee Friendly Carmarthen

We are launching a new project to make Carmarthen an official Bee Friendly town.

In September the Welsh Government launched a new nationwide scheme for towns, communities, schools, businesses, universities, public bodies and places of worship to encourage action around pollinators under the title Bee Friendly / Caru Gwenyn (http://www.biodiversitywales.org.uk/Wales-Action-Plan-for-Pollinators )

We would like to make Carmarthen  one of the first towns in Wales to be an official ‘Bee Friendly’ town,  so we are launching this new project with a special film showing a talk by Friends of the Earth bee campaigner Bleddyn Lake.

If you would like to get involved with Bee Friendly Carmarthen please do join us :

The Four Goals for Bee Friendly are:

1. Food–providing pollinator-friendly food sources in your area

2. Five Star accommodation–providing places for insect pollinators to live

3. Freedom from pesticides and herbicides – committing to avoid chemicals that harm pollinators

4. Fun–involving all the community and telling people why you are helping pollinators.
