Våra vänner pollinatörerna

Our Friends the Pollinators

Drop in workshop with Erik Sjödin
Sunday 20 May 2018, 1–4pm! Free entry

Our Friends the Pollinators is a workshop for kids, youths and adults to learn how to build homes for pollinators such as honey bees, wild bees and bumble bees. Join us on Sunday 20 May to build houses for wild solitary bees out of birch bark, reed, and other organic materials. Those who join will be able to take their newly made house away with them to place in a garden or park of their choice. They will also be able to contribute to the construction of a larger house for pollinators that will be built in Marabouparken and opening on Wednesday 13 June, 6pm!

Honey bees are great pollinators that are often discussed in the media for their important role in pollinating flowers and plants. However, recent scientific studies have shown that wild pollinators are even more important for efficient pollination. Unfortunately many species of wild pollinators are endangered or already extinct. One of several contributing factors is the disappearance of their habitats. In some cases their situation can be helped by constructing various homes for them. Constructing a pollinator house is an opportunity to learn about the needs of pollinators and the larger structural changes we must address to increase biodiversity and make a difference for pollinators.

Come and build houses for pollinators!

The workshop is a collaboration with ABF Norra Stockholms län
