Bee Farming and Outdoor Activities
Bristol is a beautiful city with wonderful parks and estates but we're not utilising these amazing spaces to their full potential while maintaining their green assets. Take the Frome Valley, the Avon Valley, Ashton Court and all other estate areas and places of outstanding natural beauty and look at starting 1000's of bee hives to produce Bristol Honey, Wax and even look at springs to start a Bristol Spring Water org. At the same time BCC can run several Outdoor Activity Companies with high ropes courses, archery, climbing & abseiling, Raft building, river and land based team challenges and orienteering. Working through parks with Crazy Golf coures as well, there are ways to make open spaces better without developing them for pride of place and opportunities for everyone, expecially extra-curricular activities for School. Maybe even in partnership with Bristol's head office for ASDAN Awarding Body which assist schools throughout the UK.
Why the contribution is important
This idea brings green capital projects even closer, it helps bee's to have safe harvesting homes, it helps young people to learn more about the outdoors, it offers confidence sessions to people with depression, it offers young people an exciting extra-curriculum for school, it see's Bristol produce essential food ingredients, it create's 100's of jobs, it helps to protect green spaces through income revenue and it brings the countryside closer to the urban areas.
