2018 is a special year for Bees for Development as we celebrate 25 years of working to support beekeepers in the world’s poorest countries.

The BfD Birthday Giveaway gives you the chance every month of 2018 to win a fabulous BfD Birthday prize!


Our Birthday Giveaway prize for September is a fabulous weekend at Humble by Nature in the Wye Valley. The prize consists of two vouchers for Courses on the working farm owned by broadcaster and writer Kate Humble. The farm is home to a thriving rural skills centre offering a wide range of Courses including smallholding; traditional rural skills and crafts; and food and cookery. All the tutors are experts in their fields, and Courses have small numbers to ensure personal attention and hands-on experience. Whether you are thinking about starting a smallholding, want to build a dry stone wall, lay a hedge, or discover delicious wild food in the hedgerow, a Course at Humble by Nature will give you the knowledge and confidence to get started.

And included with this special September prize is bed and breakfast at the fabulous Inn at Penallt: a 17th Century traditional country Inn, with spectacular views of the Forest of Dean, adjoining a nature reserve, and branded by visitors as a ‘little paradise’.
