Or do we?
Caroline, the bee inspector, says there are now too many honey bee colonies in the capital, and insufficient forage. Maybe the best support we can give the bees is to plant forage plants - for which I have a number of lists if anybody wants to peruse them. Friends of the Earth have a bee seed package for about £3.00.

On Friday 1st - that lovely sunny day, i saw many bees around the national hive, but sadly none around the top bar. I have now opened the hive and found no survivors.

Are members aware that a planning application has been lodged to erect an inflatable dome, as big as an aircraft hangar on the tennis courts only 100 meters away from the Meadow Orchard Project? Check it out on Haringey's Planning website HGY/2013/0039
If you want to register an objection this must be done by 15th February at the latest.I have put some leaflets with more details at the top of the footpath.
Many thanks for helping to preserve the natural habitats around…Continue

There are many ripe blackberries in the far end of Meadow Orchard at the moment. I have already picked a load and made about 10 pounds of blackcurrent and apple jam last week. Patrick is going to open the door on Thursday 30th day time to allow some more picking. And of course Meadow Orchard is normally open on Saturdays. So please come along and make use of them. Depending on the weather, they might be good for another couple of weeks.
