Co-ordinated by Defra, and supported by several Countryside Classroom partners, Bees' Needs Week aims to encourage everyone to help our valuable insect pollinators. We also have resources to help

There are five simple actions you can take to help pollinators and make sure their populations are sustained:

  •     Grow more flowers, shrubs and trees
  •     Let your garden grow wild
  •     Cut your grass less often
  •     Don’t disturb insect nest and hibernation spots
  •     Think carefully about whether to use pesticides

These Countryside Classroom resources give more information suitable for school use:
