Bee Curious 4 April 2019

Enter the world of pollinators and find out more about the amazing creatures that are so valuable in our world and contribute so much to our food supply. Thanks to the work of our bees and other pollinating insects we can enjoy a varied diet which includes plants, fruit, vegetables and berries from all over the world. Without our bees we wouldn’t even have chocolate or coffee!

The Bee Curious event on Saturday 18th May 11am – 4pm at the Lough Neagh Discovery Centre aims to celebrate the value of these little creatures and their significance to local food producers. There will be a range of stalls with locally produced foods including honey and preserves, cosmetics derived from natural ingredients, bee keeping equipment and plants.

Nature Conservation organisations will highlight some of the features that can be included in gardens looking at useful plants and simple features to benefit the insects, bees and wildlife in general.

There will be demonstrations and activities to suit families and visitors of all ages. For further information contact Lough Neagh Discovery Centre on 028 3832 2205.
