About the Bee Friendly Trust

It all began with two urban beekeepers, Luke and Qais...

…putting some bee friendly planters on Putney station in West London.
The aim was to increase forage for urban bees. That was in 2016. From this one small project the charity was born. Nearby stations asked for planters. Network Rail and Transport for London got involved. The two beekeepers were joined by others. Now the charity has a dedicated team of specialists and volunteers.
