This weekend Buglife and Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust are creating new wildflower mini meadows within Cockington arboretum, and they need your help to sow the seeds. The flowers will provide a burst of colour in the summer, and much needed food and habitat for bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other pollinating insects.
Joanne Gilvear, Conservation Officer at Buglife said: “The Arboretum will look amazing with the addition of a mixture of wildflowers. Our bees are in trouble, but by planting more wildflowers across Torbay we can help provide the nectar and pollen that they need.”
Torbay’s Buzzing! is helping insect pollinators by filling Torbay’s parks and green spaces with wildflowers. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Torbay Council, Torbay’s Buzzing! is transforming areas of mown grass from green deserts into havens for wildlife and people.
Join us in the park on Apple Day Sunday 16th October 10am-4pm to help sow the seeds of a new meadow!
