Native bees are wonderful garden companions, pollinators and producers of small amounts of tasty honey. This free native bee workshop will dicuss the basics of keeping and propagating native stingless bees in hives. 

Presented by Tim Heard, an entomologist, long term stingless beekeeper and author of The Australian Native Bee Book (best seller and multi award winner). Tim has been keeping Australian native stingless bees since 1985, when he transferred his first hive from a cut-down tree into a wooden box. He now has over 500 hive's obtained through rescuing threatened wild hives and splitting existing hives. 

This workshop is suitable for adults.

Bookings are essential.
