About Us

Welcome To The Nectar House

 

Here on the buzzing Gloucester Road in Bristol lies our pollinator friendly café. Its purpose is to help raise awareness around the plight of pollinators. We can’t overstate the importance of pollinators for our ecosystem and our food chain.

Here at Nectar house, we support ‘Bee the Change’; a non-profit, education co-op based in Bristol and Stroud, founded by Heather Moore.

Pollinators are in trouble

 

These vital populations are endangered due to declining feeding and nesting habitats, changing climates, and pressures from pollution, chemicals and pesticides, and disease.  

Our way of life, our agriculture, and our planet’s health depend on pollinators – and increasingly, pollinators depend on us to protect them in the face of mounting environmental challenges.

Our mission

Help raise awareness of this critical issue and get people talking about it. We also want to help people make positive change, whether that is buying local, sustainable and organic products, purchasing ethical honey or planting wildflowers in their gardens. 

What can you do?

Avoid harmful pesticides, fertilisers and herbicides. Plant bee friendly plants in your garden. A full list of bee friendly plants can be found by visiting www.rhs.org.uk 

Support a local

Support a local bee keeper by buying their local honey and wax merchandise. Adopt a hive.

What are we doing

We have planted all be friendly plants in our back garden and made bee hotels for our little pollinating friends. We have also planted hardy shrubs (hebes) at the front of our café alongside jasmines, lavender and cosmos.

Bee The Change Project

We support Bee The Change Project by selling merchandise during our café hours, with all profits going directly to them.

Our Supplier

All of our honey purchased, comes from local bee keepers who only practice ethical treatment with their hives. Therefore, no chemicals used on them, not sugar feed during winter months and only a small amount of honey is extracted from the hive.
