May 20th Is World Bee Day!
Here at F&F, we love World Bee Day! Did you know that there are over 20,000 species of bee that exist? Here in Australia, we’re so lucky to have around 2,000 native bee species.
The main purpose of World Bee Day is to raise awareness for our fuzzy, bumbling friends and the amazing work they do to keep our ecosystems healthy. It’s also about highlighting the major threats that bees face, like climate change, habitat loss, intensive agriculture, pesticides, disease, and invasive plants.
There are a few ways that we can support bees on World Bee Day. We love the idea of planting bee-friendly flowers (Daisies, Poppies, Schizanthus, Alyssum and Nemophila) with Urban Greens’ Bee-Friendly Flowers Seed Ball kit, or setting up a pollinator farm or ‘bee hotel” on your balcony, terrace, or garden.
