BeeGAP (Gardeners Adding Pollinators) is a community initiative from Creative Woodcraft, which aims to provide the following to New Zealand gardeners:
- Help raise awareness around the decline in bee populations.
- Educate Kiwi's on alternative pollinators.
- Provide leafcutter & bumble bee knowledge and information.
- Encourage Kiwi's to make their gardens bee/pollinator friendly.
A Creative Woodcraft initiative, BeeGAP (Gardeners’ Adding Pollinators) serves as the all-in-one resource on all things bees and pollination. From humble beginnings, Founder Ian Morton combined his two passions of wood and permaculture to develop a manufacturing niche like no other and thus, Creative Woodcraft was born.
Designing and producing bee habitats, bird feeders and conservation items, Ian’s passion to provide gardeners with an opportunity to increase pollination fast came to light. In the ensuing years, an overwhelming consumer interest led to BeeGAP working in with some of the country’s largest retailers, where customers are now able to purchase a wide range of bee related and pollination-based products from all reputable garden centres and proud stockists nationwide.
Essentially, the message of increasing pollination is simple and BeeGAP is out to make a difference. As a result of the desire to push this message far and wide, BeeGAP was formed to provide a go-to resource to help raise awareness of bees and alternative pollinators, provide product instructions, expertise and advice and collectively encourage New Zealanders to make their gardens pollinator friendly environments.
