Pledge your Garden to Pollinators!

Our pollinating insects are in decline, with one-third of our 98 wild bee species at risk of extinction. Help "Save the Bees" with Kinsale Tidy Towns new initiatives to "Pledge your Garden to Pollinators".

We have a downloadable planting guide and calendar to help our community work together to provide food and shelter for bees. Together our community can help to make a difference.

We have been in to our local schools with Bee Hotel projects and if you would like to make one, you can click here.

  • Grape Hyacinth
