Creating a buzz on golf course
Wednesday 11th June 2014
Volunteers from Bearsted Woodland Trust have teamed up with grounds staff from Tudor Park to plant pockets of wild flowers on the hotel’s golf course.
The move is part of Operation Pollinator - an international biodiversity program to boost the number of pollinating insects on commercial farms and golf courses. Farmers and golf course managers across Europe and the USA havae been given targeted seed mixtures, along with advice on the use of pesticides designed to benefit pollinators.
John Edmed, Tudor Park golf course manager, said: “I feel very proud that we are able to do this and give something back to the environment.”
