The Minus Pollinators project, created in collaboration with artist Freddie Yauner and commissioned by Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, proposes a dystopian future when we’ve experienced catastrophic insect pollinator decline. The project manifests as a mobile drinks kiosk where all of the familiar items that require pollinators have been crossed off, including coffee, most teas, chocolate, fruit juices etc.
The kiosk, which acts as an exhibition display for facts and figures related to pollinators, is featuring at the Groundswell Regenerative Agriculture Show and Conference on 22nd and 23rd June 2022, the most significant gathering of its kind in the UK. The Wild Bee Café kiosk is located in the Big Top tent, alongside the stage that hosts talks and debates by Secretary of State George Eustice, Head of National Farmers Union Minette Batters, and the National Food Strategy author Henry Dimbleby. Yes, we will be bugging them!
Come along and see us! Myself and Freddie will be there to welcome you.
