was the very main attraction for the hundreds of visitors from all over London who visited during last weekend's Open Garden event. This is such a good initiative.

For those with a particular interest in bees and beekeeping, Surrey Docks Farm will be holding their Beginners guide to Beekeeping course this Sunday the 16th from 13:00 to about 17:00. The course is designed to give people who have very little or no beekeeping experience a glance into the world of beekeeping, including how a beehive works, how bees make honey and much more. The course will also include a look into a beehive (weather permitting) and some basic bee handling skills. For more information see the Surrey Docks Farm website:
