Celebrate World Bee day

Join us at Kumbartcho Sanctuary for a 90-minute workshop on keeping native stingless bees. The workshop is a mix of photographic slideshows and practical sessions to learn more about bees, stingless bees and beekeeping. 

In this session, you will learn how to divide hives, extract honey and use the bees for pollinating your garden. 

Presented by Tim Heard, an entomologist and ex-CSIRO research scientist. Tim has been keeping Australian native stingless bees since 1985. Tim continues to develop new hive designs and techniques that allow better splitting and extraction of sugarbag and wax. 

Suitable for all ages. Keep in mind that 30 - 45 minutes of the workshop will include a slideshow. Consider if this activity is well suited to your children. 

Bookings essential.
