Climate Change

London Bee Summit 2010, 16th December

Bees are in peril and there are a number of suspects, from pesticides to climate change. With human wellbeing so intimately tied to the fate of the bee, Capital Growth are calling together organisations working with bees in London and the UK to ask:

What’s happening to the honey bee?

What can Londoners to do help?

There will be an inaugural London Honey Tasting, a display of hives and equipment, and refreshments courtesy of the Co-op’s Plan Bee.

Speakers include:

Environment minister Lord Henley

Dr Opi Outhwaite from Greenwich University on bee health and regulation

Nick Fraser from the National Trust on managing parks and gardens without chemicals

Elinor McDowall from Bungay Community Bees, the UK’s first community-supported beekeeping.

Registration is essential and there’s a discount for Capital Growth spaces. Find more information and the booking form at:

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
