Open Garden Squares Weekend

Visit our Bee Sanctuary and Alchemical Garden


In 2012 volunteers at New Acropolis created a bee sanctuary and garden in a derelict space at the back of our premises. Using the ancient Greek word for ‘bee’, we gave it the name ‘Melissa Garden Bee Sanctuary’. It was established to create a space for bees, not with a view to harvesting the honey, but to give the bees a protected home.

Every year in June, we open this hidden garden to the public through the event known as Open Garden Squares Weekend. Visitors have the opportunity to observe the bees and learn about their way of life from our resident beekeeper and guides. You can also hear about the many bee-friendly plants that exist and that help the bees survive in the hostile environment of our monoculture world.

The most recent addition to the garden design is an alchemical-themed living wall incorporating some medicinal plants.

Fees: See Open Garden Squares Weekend website at http://www.opensquares.org for tickets and more information.
