Bees, beans, and others in between.

Welcome to the blog for Bees 'n Beans, a study from the University of Sussex using volunteer help to see how busy the bees are in gardens and allotments all over the country. This project ran during the summers of 2014, 2015 and 2016, and the data is currently being analysed.

News and updates from the project itself will continue on this website, as well as giving information about bees and the urban environments they share with us. We also have a twitter at @LJBees.

Bees 'n Beans is sister project to the University of Sussex's new Buzz Club - a UK-wide 'Citizen Science' charity that aims to help people get interested in pollinator science. Providing fun experiments you can do from home, that also collect important data on our pollinating insects, to properly inform conservation efforts and research. Check out the website and see what we're up to, and how you can take part!
