The upcycled Flow Pollinator House funds amazing projects around the world
Flow Hive gives 100% of profits from sales of our Flow Pollinator House to organisations that work to improve pollinator health.
The Flow Pollinator house is created from repurposed timber offcuts from our hive manufacturing and sustainably-sourced bamboo.
Specifically targeted towards solitary nesting bees—which make up the majority of over 19,000 bee species worldwide—these cosy homes provide and encourage solitary nesting pollinators to take up residence in your garden.
