Monmouth Bee Town

Monmouth Bee Town

A pilot project entitled Nature Isn't Neat will focus on Monmouth, thanks to a successful bid made by MTC in partnership with Monmouth's own Bees for Development, and Transition Monmouth.

The Vale of Usk Rural Development Programme selected Monmouth's application thanks to the huge support we have received from local organisations. 

The first year will focus on raising awareness across Monmouth of all pollinator species including moths, butterflies, hoverflys and bees.

Reaching into all areas of our community, schools, places of business and community groups, the action plan will embed an understanding of the need to protect, feed, provide habitats and reverse the decline in pollinators.

The second year of the programme will demonstrate actions that can be taken by everyone to enhance and protect our pollinators.

We look forward to continuing to work with Transition Monmouth and Bees for Development, and welcome the support that the programme provider will bring for all our community.
