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.
