The other side of St Valentine – Podcast with the Global Lab

Unless you know all about Catholic saints it may come as a surprise that in addition to being the patron saint of lovers, St Valentine is the patron saint of beekeepers (and plague, epilepsy and fainting, but I digress…).

Bees, urban gardening in skips and the carbon footprint of a Valentine’s Day feature in the ‘Other side of St Valentine’ episode of the Global Lab podcast series. YouTube wildlife presenter Maddie Moate told me about her passion for bees, Julia King spoke to Oliver Marsh about a mobile garden project in Central London, and Anna Ploszajski gave us a rundown of the environmental impact of a thoroughly celebrated Valentine’s Day.
