Heard of the London Bee summit? Coming up shortly

London Bee Summit 2010, 16th December
Bees are in peril and there are a number of suspects, from pesticides to climate change. With human wellbeing so intimately tied to the fate of the bee, we are calling together organisations working with bees in London and the UK to ask: what’s happening to the honey bee? And what can Londoners to do help?
We'll have the inaugural London Honey Tasting, a display of hives and equipment, and refreshments courtesy of the Co-op's Plan Bee.
Speakers include:
Environment minister Lord Henley
Dr Opi Outhwaite from Greenwich University on bee health and regulation;
Nick Fraser from the National Trust on managing parks and gardens without chemicals; and
Elinor McDowall from Bungay Community Bees, the UK's first community-supported beekeeping.

Registration is essential and there's a discount for Capital Growth spaces. Find more information and the booking form at:
