We choose the BCT because we want to work in partnership with a charity who can help us and our owners to improve gardens for bees. Pollinators are seriously at risk from increased pesticide use and land-use changes.
All our houses have gardens. Some of our team and our owners are farmers and caretake large tracts of land. By working with them to help educate, inspire and create simple practical change we can make a significant difference to insect and plant habitats.
Our target is that by 2023 we want at least half of our owners to be planting with pollinators in mind.
Check out our blog post to read why gardening with pollinators in mind is so important to the food we eat and biodiversity.
