Being a Natura 2000 site, Dwejra is one of the gems of Gozo – not only because of its natural beauty but also because of the hidden gifts nature has donated to us on this site. Dwejra is a site rich in pollinator wild plants which are vital for bees to produce honey – bees that in this day and age are struggling to function and survive because of the excessive human intervention on nature. The event, on the 21st of October 2018 will focus around the theme of pollinators and Bee Keeping in a Natura 2000 site. Starting at 3pm, next to the chapel at Dwejra, we will go on a guided walk exploring the wild plants that are present in the area and understanding their importance and contribution to the eco-system of honey making. After the walk we will be able to visit an apiary for a short while to look at how bees produce honey. The event is free of charge but bookings with a refundable deposit are necessary, via the form below as the event has a limited number of places.
This is the fourth event from a series of events that Friends of the Earth is producing in Gozo as part of the Let’s Nature project. This initiative has been supported by the Ministry for Gozo NGO Assistance Scheme, a funding programme for Voluntary Organisations on the Island of Gozo.
