To ignite children and young peoples:curiosity, creativity and confidence inspired by bees and ecology. Teaching  practical, life and social skills, nurturing through nature.

Inspired by the matriarchy of the bee hive.

Beauty in the Woods is a programme that aims to empower young women by creating fireside  sister circles where teenage girls can have a voice and can learn to become mutually supportive of one another. Practical survival skills will be taught.  Those that will both conserve nature and nurture the self and others.

  .  To include:

Learning to cook through camp fire cuisine | Foraging and plant ID | Natural female folk law & female role-models | Moon cycles and female cycles | Bee Mindful activities | Eco-therapy arts and performance | Natural beauty preparation | Fire and wood craft 

Our first course of 2021 will be run in Spring/Summer  with 12 young women, Year 10,  from Hastings Academy School. This has been funded by Hastings Opportunity fund.  The aim is to attract further funding that will enable us to offer the Bee Potion 'Beauty In the Woods Courses' to those identified by schools, social services for young people most in need.


Profits from our skincare sales support the work that we do, but If you are interested in finding out more how you can help us help the next generation  in   2021 and beyond we would love to hear from you:
