This week (13th-19th July) is Pollinator Awareness Week, which provides an opportunity to raise awareness of pollinators needs and encourage everyone to take action to support them. A number of South Downs farmers are already doing this by managing habitats such as pollen and nectar mixes and species rich grasslands.
To help promote Pollinator Awareness week, the CFE are posting pictures of good pollinator habitats on their website (send images to firstname.lastname@example.org) or tweeting them #cfepollinators. If you've got a buzzing pollen and nectar mix or a humming wildflower meadow, why not send in a snap.
Pollen and nectar rich habitats play a vital role in farm conservation management
