To celebrate a year since the Ross Fountain’s restoration, The Quaich Project is hosting a day of free, family-friendly activities in West Princes Street Gardens. As the first anniversary falls within Defra’s Bees Needs Week, we will be highlighting The Quaich Project’s commitment to biodiversity and our core theme of “A Space for Nature”.
11am-4pm Workshops and craft activities by The Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust, bee hotel making from the RSPB, face-painting, a performance from the Scottish Country Dancing Society and a bee hive with honey-tasting from The Scottish Beekeepers Association. There will also be the opportunity for public to see a live demonstration of the World Bee Project’s Hive Network which is connected to a beehive at the University of Edinburgh’s Apiary.
12:30pm Sing in the City Community Choir, mini cupcakes and welcome from The Quaich Project
We’ll also be giving away wildflower bee bombs to help restore the lost wildflower habitat and make an important contribution to the biodiversity. Thanks to our friends at Beebombs who have generously donated the native wildflower bee bombs. Learn more about how you can help bring the bees back at www.beebombs.com
