What's On Moreton Bay | Native Bees workshop with Tim Heard

Native Bees workshop with Tim Heard

Multiple Locations
September 23rd at 10:00am
from $5.00

This workshop with teach you the basics of keeping native stingless bees in hives. Stingless bees are Australia's indigenous social bee. They are a native alternative to honey bees, but are harmless and well suited to community and school gardens.

The hives are useful garden companions being effective pollinators of many plants. Hives yield small amounts of delectable honey. They are great tools for environment education as they are inherently fascinating to children and have many interactions with plants and other insects.

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.

It is recommended that you wear light coloured clothing and a net hat if you have one.
