Bring the Bees Back Irish Wildflower Seed Planting

One-third of all Irish wild bee species are threatened with extinction by 2030. Habitat loss and the constant decline of wildflowers is causing this rapid decline. This is serious for Ireland and serious for its people; biodiversity is crucial for many reasons and wildflowers are crucial to biodiversity. 

Get a group of your delegates together and do some wildflower seed planting to help bring the bees back. Four weeks’ notice is required to arrange.

Delegate numbers: 220
What it is: Gardening (dependant on time of year for planting)
Who it supports: The environment
Time needed: One hour
Who to contact: Rose Finn
