“Alison is a fantastic educator and hugely passionate about the welfare of bees. Urban Bees’ entertaining and practical lunchtime sessions about how to help bees have proved extremely popular with our employees at all levels of the firm. It’s been a fantastic way to engage employees in sustainability issues. Many of us have planted their bee-friendly wildflower seed mix at home with great results. We've really enjoyed learning how to identify different bee species on our London office roof terrace and the flowers the bees are visiting. Employees also appreciate why Weil has transformed its roof terrace to provide food and lodging for wild bees. And pupils from one of our partner primary schools have come into the office to make bee-hotels and go on a rooftop bee safari with Urban Bees. It's an experience they say they'll never forget!”- Robert, London at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP
