Farming for bumblebees

Much of the work that BBCT does is with farmers and other land managers, and we have a team of Conservation Officers working in the parts of the UK where the rarest bumblebees still live. In those areas, we can produce management plans to let them farmers know what seeds to sow, when the cut the resulting wildflowers back, and other aspects of managing their land in ways that will help the bees there. Part of this advisory work includes ‘Farm Days’, where we invite farmers to come along to other farms to see what the farmers there are doing that benefits bees.
