April is National Pet Month, and this year we thought we would make your visit to 387 Vets prettier and more peaceful, and help save the bees at the same time! On the afternoon of Saturday 29th April, we’ll be getting green fingered and planting lavender in the carpark. We’ll also be sowing bee friendly flower troughs along the visitor journey from the car park. Bees are increasingly under threat from pesticides, disease and lack of a sustained food source. So making sure they have access to pollen and nectar-rich plants over a large proportion of the year, by planting suitable flowers and vegetation, can only help.
We’ll also be doing a litter pick in the local area on that afternoon to help keep your pets’ paws (and tummies!) safe.
If you’d like to join us to come and help out, we’d love to see you. We’ll be out and about planting and litter picking between 2.30pm and 4.30pm. It should be fun, and there will be afternoon tea with homemaking for all volunteers! Save the date!
