Bees&Seas Buzzing with Spacehive Funding

We have launched our Spacehive Crowdfunder to raise 'much needed' funding for our new Bees&Seas project!  Working alongside Friends of Brooklands Park and Creative Waves - we aim to create a community beekeeping project, pollination hub and educational training space in the heart of Brooklands Park. This area is currently a disused urban council yard (which sits outside the local council's Brooklands master plan) and we need your help to transform it into an attractive ecological, natural asset for the local community!

We have been incredibly lucky to have gathered the support of 8 wonderful backers to get this project set up and off the ground. We really need additional funding to bring the project alive, maintain the hives, develop the green space and, importantly, run a series of workshops for the local community. Please help us support your local environment by donating through Spacehive. Any funding will directly help us to:

- Build an enclosed area to safely host three community beehives
- Create suitable habitats and foraging grounds for bees and other pollinators
- Build a community hub for educational and community activity
- Deliver an education programme with regular workshops for young people and families throughout the year
- Create small product ranges from the beehives for the local community - with all profits reinvested in the project

In addition to the Crowdfunder, we have bespoke donation opportunities available. You or your business can sponsor anything from beehives and bug hotels to green roofs and the educational hub. Please contact us if this is something that interests you - we would love to hear from you.


The One Pot Project Exceeds Funding Target

 

Thank you so much to all you awesome FoodPioneers out there.  With your generosity we’ve raised £1,330 towards buying and distributing slow cookers to those who need them most. Huge thanks to Ed Kilroy, pictured here, for his time and energy on this project and to everyone who has made it possible. Next steps: we will be making up packs and recipes to distribute to our friends at Worthing Homes, Turning Tides and our local Food Banks all of whom are doing incredible work. We will keep you posted and don’t forget to join ‘The One Pot Project’ FB page to find out more.

If you wanted to and haven’t yet you can still donate through our crowdfunder.  A stretch target means the more we raise the more packs we can supply to the local community.
