Please join me on a Bumblebee Safari at Yeo Valley Organic Gardens in Blagdon, Somerset.

We’ve just added the first dates to the calendar. This is a lovely morning event, within a gorgeous and organic garden.

Tickets make the perfect gift for anyone with a love of gardening that wants to learn some more about their garden bees and pollinators.

You’ll be greeted with tea and coffee and CAKE in the Yurt, followed by an illustrated introduction to some of our quirky wild bees (not honeybees) followed by Q&A and a bee safari around the gardens.

Your ticket includes entry into these fabulous gardens, so why not make a day of it and go for lunch afterwards and take time to explore these magical gardens. The first date is Friday April 12th – that’s a perfect time to see some Queen bumblebees foraging in the garden. You’ll get the first glimpse of the spring blossom too. It’s magical.

This year’s dates are:

Friday 12th April 2024

Saturday 4th May 2024
