This free event is brought to you by Bees for Development
Known locally as The Bee Shop, visitors step in to the delicious aroma of beeswax and honey, and explore the natural products made by harnessing the power of bees. This shop is perfect for everyone who loves bees or is seeking gifts for someone who does, and for beekeepers too.
However, The Bee Shop is a modest front to our major work running projects: Bees for Development is an international development organisation based in Monmouth, Wales, using beekeeping to help people in the world’s poorest countries. We provide resources and materials for local trainers, have worked in more than 50 countries world-wide and we currently run projects in Ethiopia, Cameroon, Ghana, Vietnam and Uganda. Bees for Development always use local bees and local skills to make the simple, effective bee hives that are best for bees, and best for people.
Supporters can see the work we do by joining our unique Bee Safaris, taking those with a passion for adventure into the ancient highlands of northern Ethiopia or to the tropical islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
Bees need our support now more than ever, and we provide the information, Courses and resources to help as well as being the main contact channel for beekeepers all over Monmouthshire and the rest of the world. To learn more about what we do and how you can help, visit our website or come into our shop today.
Monmouth’s best family friendly event, celebrating the work of bees.
Proceeds help raise funds for local work protecting bees.
Taste honey, buy bee friendly plants, meet local beekeepers and then relax in the shade of the old sycamore tree with a fresh cup of tea and cake.
And the usual suspects...
From Waitrose car park, turn left up Blestium Street (opposite direction of the roundabout and bridge).
Carry on until you reach a small pay and display car park.
Next to the car park’s ticket machine is a pathway leading up and around a red brick set of flats.
Carry on up this path and it will lead you the Nelson Garden.
