Faith Communities – Actions to Help Pollinators

Faith Communities across the island of Ireland are being called on to take actions to help save our bees. Faith communities often own large areas of land and can lead the way in managing our landscape to better support and enhance all nature and creation.

These non-denominational guidelines suggest 24 practical actions that any faith community can take. They are based on scientific research and are the measures that are most likely to benefit Irish pollinators.

Some of the actions include:

  • Mowing areas of grass using a pollinator-friendly regime
  • Installing a bee hotel
  • Raising awareness in your faith community
  • Organising a congregation action day
  • Planting pollinator friendly bulbs, trees, shrubs and flower beds and reducing the use of pesticides
