Friends of The Honey Bee

If you have friends and relatives who are not beekeepers but are interested in helping the Honey Bee, ask them to join the BBKA’s campaign “Friends of The Honey Bee”.

Friends of the Honey Bee is a national campaign. With your help, we can help fund research against the Varroa mite to make healthier bees and stronger colonies to survive the winter. We can plant honey bee-friendly flowers and trees which flower throughout the season. Making for healthier honey bees AND a much more beautiful and diverse Britain for us all – blooming and buzzing from early Spring through to late Autumn.
