This week I attended a workshop to celebrate the partnership between My Chelsea hotel, Silken Favours and Friends Of The Earth – to highlight the importance of bee conservation for our society. We learned how to print one of Vicki's gorgeous bee prints onto tote bags, under the patient guidance of textile artist Zeena Shah.
Lisa from Miss Victoria's Floral Emporium then guided us through making crowns using anemones, lavender, Sweet Williams, wax flowers, roses and daisies.
On 19th May, Friends Of The Earth will be launching a free app you can use to count bees. This data will inform the government of populations by species and geographic areas, thus determining which crops we need to plant more of to ensure we save the bees!
