YSP Bee Boxes


Yorkshire Sculpture Park have run a couple of workshops with families to make bee boxes for gardens. These here, made during the Bee Event day in July, are for solitary bees, but you can get others for bumblebees too. You can buy quite a few different ones for your garden, but perhaps it would be more fun to make your own.

I found this great website with a page on how to make a solitary bee box
