Bee & Pollinator Events for 2023

I very excited to tell you what I am doing in 2023 to inspire and inform about bumblebees, solitary bees and other pollinators. A lot is still embargoed but I can share a few highlights.

Yeo Valley Bee Safaris

I’ll be taking my bee safaris at Yeo Valley Organic Gardens starting in May 2023. Come and join me for morning coffee, an illustrated talk and then a bee safari around the gardens at Yeo Valley. It’s a great morning treat and a fun way to meet some of your garden pollinators and learn more about garden bees, other pollinators and great plants to grow to support them.

The dates this year are:

Thursday May 4th 2023 SOLD OUT

Friday June 16th 2023 SOLD OUT

Thursday July 20th 2023

Saturday August 19th 2023.

Jekka’s HerbFest II

Then in June/July I am going to be taking bee tours at Jekka’s HerbFest II. The dates are Friday June 30th 2023, Saturday July 1st 2023 and Sunday July 2nd 2023. This is an amazing chance to learn all about herbs with top herb experts, chefs and speakers plus of course the Herb Queen herself – Jekka McVicar. Each day is packed with great speakers, fab food, evocative herbs and even the healing powers of these magical plants. Plus you can join me for a bee tour around the new herb garden and the amazing herbetum. You can learn more about the line-up and book tickets here.


This year I am sharing my love of pollinators and bees with Horticultural Societies and Gardening Clubs as a speaker.

If you’d like to book me to do an event, please get in touch via Twitter (@TheGreenJeanie) or Instagram (@addicted2bees) or via my contact page on my other website.

Watch this space for more events for 2023. I’ve got a few more up my sleeve, but right now I can’t tell you too much. Soon!
