Bee Spoke Todmorden
ITV Region: Yorkshire North / Year: 2011
The project is to build a bee biotope which is a sensory habitat created to support bees. It will provide fun opportunities for the local community to learn about bees and the importance of bees in our ecosystem. The project will include interactive learning, a sensory planting scheme, guide walks and maps to illustrate connections between bees and food production, biodiversity and habitat sustainability and workshops to make bee homes.

The honey bee has been buzzing around for 30 million years. working together we can try and keep it buzzing for for the next 30 million
A lot of us take the environment around us for granted,
Stop and think, what would towns and villages look and feel like without bees and other pollinators? What would happen to plants and agriculture, would there be habitat for birds and other wildlife? We need to help bees so that we can pass on a healthy vibrant sustainable environment to our grandchildren and our grandchildren’s children.
Bee Spoke will do this in Todmorden and possibly create a model that can be copied in other towns.
