77 funded projects. 2,000 backers. £450k raised and counting...
We are requesting funding for an inclusive pollination project that seeks to engage local schools, community groups, colleges, local businesses and residents in furthering their knowledge and understanding of pollinating insects and the vital role they play in putting food on our plates. We want to deliver exciting activities ranging from "meeting the bees" sessions with our existing cohort of volunteer beekeepers, making and sharing out seed bombs and bug hotels and planting up community spaces to training up to become a volunteer community beekeeper for our project. We will work with a range of different partner organisations to deliver this project, including Men in Sheds and local social enterprise Breathing Spaces CIC who will help us propagate pollinator friendly plants and co-design workshops and activities with new audiences. We will also host community honey spinning days in the autumn, "bottling" our own honey with people being able see for the first time how honey is made.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Many people nowadays are aware of the threat of pollinator decline but don't know how best to support pollinators in their daily lives. With the Worthing Honey Collective we now want to harness this awareness and continue to work on a wholesome, impactful project that supports local people in the town and the surrounding areas to set up their own little year-round wildlife havens while supporting town-wide planting and education initiatives.
Steps to get it done:
It will support the natural economy of our town, and create a more aware and engaged community actively supporting pollinators and other wildlife in our town.
