Raise awareness of the importance of bees and the necessity to provide sources of nectar for them. We wish to use 3 plant boxing areas in a city school to grow Irish wild flowers and other plants, promote a circular economy by sourcing waste coffee grounds to grow the plants and make the plant boxing area a nature reserve for bees.
It would be great to involve the local community in the provision of growth material, reduce waste being sent for disposal and potentially use herbs grown in the boxing area for human consumption. The importance of our buzzing pollinators in bring food from seed to plate would be studied.
