Get Devon Buzzing!

We all know that without pollinators we are in big trouble and that we need to play our part in supporting our bees, hoverflies, butterflies and wasps (yes, wasps too!).

The July 2016  Devon Pollinators’ Month was packed full of Events,  a Photo Competition and the launch of the Devon Pollinators’ Pledge to help Devon’s window boxes, gardens, allotments, orchards, parks and fields become as pollinator-friendly as possible.
