October 26, 2022@9:30 am-12:00 pm
The BEESPOKE workshop, to be held at NIAB East Malling in Kent on 26th October 2022, will help fruit growers improve their selection of appropriate wildflower seed mixes as well as learn about wildflower strip establishment and management. Open to all, attendees will also find out about the benefits of wildflowers in fruit production in terms of both pollination and insect pest control
The event is part of BEESPOKE, an EU-funded research project and will be run by NIAB entomologists. Those attending will learn from the experiences of local growers who have kindly taken part in the project and are willing to share their findings with others.
The event will include presentations from NIAB entomologists Michelle Fountain and Celine Silva, along with wildlife farming expert Marek Nowakowski from Wildlife Farming and Andrew Bourne, seed specialist from T Denne & Sons. There will also be a chance to view various stages of wildflower plot development at East Malling and to discuss their practical experiences.
