Sustainable Crediton Pollinator Project

The outlook for our bees and other pollinators is very poor. They remain under pressure from many sources, including pesticides, habitat loss, predatory asian hornets, intensive farming and overly fussy standards of gardening and of grounds maintenance by local councils. Without bees and other pollinators our food chain will be threatened, as they are vital to food production.

The B-Line project aims to create a nationwide network of habitat corridors for pollinators. Devon is currently under represented on the B-Line map. Sustainable Crediton wants to put Crediton on the map.

We have made a good start with our project and have the resources in place to expand our activities.

Possible projects include: habitat restoration/ creation of new habitat, including planting, bee banks, bee hotels, wildflower meadows.

Where could we do it?  There are several possibilities including: with agreement, on private or commercially owned land; council owned land; new housing developments; school sites; roadside verges,.

What we lack though are sufficient people to make all of this happen. Please get in touch with Dee Ross via the link on this page, if you would like to help. You can commit as much or as little time as you can afford. It all helps, and will go towards making Crediton a prettier as well as a more sustainable place to live.
