Here at Welby Garden Centre we are working on our environmental sustainability. We have installed bee hives from EezyBeez (www.eezybeez.com.au) to help with pollination. Bees are one of the most important things on the planet. They pollinate nearly three quarters of the plants, that produce 90% of the world’s food (www.worldbeeday.org). In other words, the food we eat depends on bees. They also contribute to maintaining and building ecological balance and biodiversity in nature (www.worldbeeday.org). In other words, they help to keep the environment healthy.
Some composting worms have been given a home, to turn our lunch food scraps and garden clippings and weeds into amazing garden food and organic fertilizer. What the worms won’t eat the new resident chooks will!
Come down and visit our new additions and even learn something new. From time to time we will organise bee, chook and worm workshops. Keep an eye on our website and socials for upcoming workshops.
