Is anyone interested in having the use of 1 or 2 greenhouses and/or a bed ready prepared for planting which the owner can’t manage by himself and is happy for one or more people to make use of them? There is a tap by the greenhouses and a compost area and access is by a side gate. Also any other part of his large garden that someone might like to take on. He lives off Moorhead Lane (off the Saltaire roundabout).

Electronics weekly has a fascinating article on how shining 670nm red light on bees could ameliorate damage caused by neonicotinoid insecticides, according to University College London and the University City, University of London.
“The researchers found that when shining a specific wavelength of red light (670nm) it significantly reduced bee death rates and improved cell energy levels, mobility and visual function in animals exposed to neonicotinoid pesticides such as Imidacloprid which are widely used in agriculture worldwide,” said the universities.
