Butterfly & Bee Garden
A wild, colourful space for both pollinators and residents to enjoy.

A third of British pollinators are in decline today, and the Royal Horticulture Society says "if action is not taken, pollinator declines will have serious implications for biodiversity, for food production and the ornamental garden." Bristol has made substantial efforts to sustain bee populations over the past decade, but there's still more we can do to help pollinators thrive.

This peaceful, low-maintenance urban pollinator garden would serve as a safe space for insects to feed, nest, breed, and hatch. It will be a beautiful and calming space for residents to immerse themselves in nature.

It will include:
* A mini meadow of brightly coloured native flowers that bloom continuously from spring through autumn to provide food and habitat for insects in all active seasons
* Shaded areas
* Small pond with water feature to improve water quality and create relaxing atmosphere
* Bee "hotels" or a deadwood habitat
* Sections of plants with hollow stems for nesting
* Benches, picnic tables, or permanent hammocks for hanging out
* Small community "library" box for exchanging books
