idverde are adapting how we work in order to support habitats for pollinators and improve biodiversity across the UK.
The Bee Superhighway project will improve and increase habitats that support pollinators across Kensington and Chelsea. It will create ‘stepping-stones’ and linkages between existing habitats by creating new wildflower areas, increase pollinator-friendly planting and installing other beneficial features such as bug hotels and ponds. The pollinator hotspots will form a Borough-wide pollination network and will join existing habitats and green spaces, forming a ‘Bee Superhighway’.
As part of the project, the Royal Borough aims to raise the profile of pollinators and their importance to people and provide education and engagement opportunities to enable residents, community groups, schools and business to create their pollinator hotspots, big or small, contributing to the Boroughs’ pollinator Network.
idverde colleagues have been working closely with Kensington and Chelsea’s Parks and Ecology Team to create more pollinator-friendly habitats across the Borough’s parks, housing and amenity green space.
