The Buzz Club is a citizen science group run by the University of Sussex and directed by Dave Goulson. They create experiments that ask important insect conservation questions, specifically based around pollinators. These experiments can then be conducted by anyone with an outdoor space and the data is then sent back to us to analyse.
These experiments are perfect to do in allotments as they all seek to improve the biodiversity and pollinator abundance, which will improve your yield. Each experiment is easy, accessible and really will enhance our scientific knowledge and your allotments ecological value.
They also hold online webinars so you can learn how to ID the species you find. Our next event is a ‘Beginner’s Bee ID Webinar with Dave Gouslon’ – find out more here:
