Native Bee Workshop

Paterson Allyn Wiliams Science Hub & Dungog Bee Rapt presents the Native Bee Workshop.

Are you interested in keeping native stingless bees for fun, honey production, conservation or pollination? Or are you curious about these wonderful, beautiful insects? This one-day workshop will give you the facts, get you started on becoming a stingless beekeeper, and open up a world that too few know about. The day will include hive and colony splitting, honey extraction … and tasting!

Entomologist Dr Tim Heard keeps over 400 hives, many rescued threatened hives, and has been running native bee workshops since 1995.
Ecologist Dr Tobias Smith has been fascinated by bees since childhood and is a director of Bee Aware Brisbane.

Bookings essential – limited numbers.

$26 per head.  You may also purchase Tim and Tobias’s 265 page book for $20 instead of the RRP of $35 on the day.
