It’s expanding every day – but what should it be called? Bee gateway? Portal? Something that encapsulates the purpose of the LandWorks project (that is: a supported route back into the community and employment for prisoners and ex-prisoners) and the bee-inspired appearance.
I came across a fantastic charity, Connectar, who are “rehabilitating disadvantaged people into society by addressing the barriers to resettlement” while simultaneously saving the honey bee – excellent! It occurred to me that Connectar could be quite a fitting name for the sculpture, hmmmm back to the drawing board – suggestions welcome in a box (as in the comment box below).
Today I added solitary bee nests made from bamboo and a wooden stump, and tested out some planting of wild flowers – also known as weeds. If they survive the next few days we’re on to a winner.
