You're going to be bussing about this bee-utiful native bee workshop!

Join well known entomologist Tim Herd and learn about how to look after Australia's native bees in this 90-minute workshop. The workshop combines visual presentations with hands-on activities to teach participants more about bees, stingless bees, and beekeeping. You will learn how to split hives, extract honey, and learn how to get bees to pollinate your garden.

Tim is an entomologist and ex-CSIRO research scientist. He 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 keeps over 500 hives, obtained through rescuing threatened wild hives and splitting existing hives. Tim continues to develop new hive designs and techniques that allow better splitting and extraction of sugarbag and wax. Tim has been giving seminars and workshops on native bees since 1995.
