Busy bee students were out in force at the side of Sainsbury’s in March to plant a wildlife haven in March town centre.
As part of the store’s be kind to the environment campaign they teamed up with students from Facet to plant a Bee Hotel - an area rich with shrubs, bedding plants and hanging baskets.
Facet manager Kris Harrold said about 18 students helped create the new garden area using plants they have grown at the Marwick Centre garden.
He said: “Once the plants have started to set in and bloom it is going to look great. The students have worked really hard to create a permanent garden area here for people to enjoy.
“Many people don’t realise we grow plants for sale and we are now open to the public six days a week on weekdays from 9.30 to 3.30 and on Saturdays from 9 to 12. I hope people see how good this area looks and are encouraged to come along and pay us a visit to look at what we have for sale in the garden area and workshop.”

Michelle Connolly of Sainsbury’s said the Bee Hotel idea was launched to help the environment and also showed off the talents of local Facet students.
