Luke Dixon

The Bee Friendly Trust

Beekeeper and Co-Founder of the Bee Friendly Trust - aka the man on a mission to keep the nation’s bees happy. When Luke’s not busy looking after beehives across the rooftops of London (think sites such as Kensington Palace, Heathrow Airport, The British Museum and the Natural History Museum), he’s creating a network of pollinator-friendly flowering habitats around the UK. Working predominantly along railway lines, the Bee Friendly Trust installs planters, micro wildlife gardens and heritage fruit orchards on platforms and areas of abandoned land. The Trust has more than 20 stations in its portfolio, including Richmond, Thames Ditton, Clacton-on-Sea and Durham, which is home to a 1.5m tall observation hive, and works closely with TfL, LNER and Greater Anglia, as well as individuals and local conservation groups. Luke is also a theatre maker.
