Beekeeping...a taster

Bee on yellow flower

Learn about one of the earth’s most amazing insects and its millennia-old bond with flowering plants.

Honey bee-pollinated plants account for a large proportion of our diet. Understand the threats facing the bee and how these may affect our future food security.

Consider how you can assist the bee by keeping a few hives and in return make your garden and those of your surrounding community more productive.

Obtain answers to your questions on the practical aspects of beekeeping and discover why beekeeping is a relaxing and a rewarding hobby for all the family.

This day is a taster and can lead onto more workshops run by Bob Owen at Edendale.

Bob has been keeping bees for more than 14 years and is the owner of Bob’s Beekeeping Supplies in Eltham. Bob has regularly given courses on many aspects of beekeeping both in Australia and in North America. For more information on future workshops, go to Bob's Beekeeping website.
