THE ALTY MARKET GREEN WORKSHOP :
We will be volunteering our time in the 1st of 3 workshops being hosted at The Shack, New Market Square at Altrincham Market.
Beekeeper, Henry Baxendale of Bax Bees, will be at the workshop with a queen bee and you will see her stripy workers in action.
Steven from Vintage Honey Interiors will have bird boxes and wooden crates so you can decorate your own bird box or make your own bug hotel to take home!
Robert, Altrincham Markets, Market Gardener, will also talk about how to plant an urban meadow, container or window box to attract wildlife to your garden and get you started with some of the seeds and seedlings you need.
There will also be an opportunity for you to become a member of the bumble bee conservation trust and to chat with Dan Jerome of the Green Party about the benefits bees bring to our gardens before tasting some local honeys.
