Event Description

Bees, Honey and You - 10 am Thursday 23 April

At the April café, Athol Craig, Sara Bizzel and Glenbo Craig from Valley Bees (meets at Kandanga monthly) will give a taster presentation on the wonders of bees, both native and the more familiar honey bee. Bellbunya has honey and native bees in residence.

"A dominant percentage of plants that provide food and habitat in a healthy environment depend on a very wide variety of pollinators, including bats, birds, insects and wind.

It is essential that we provide habitat and other environmental requirements to ensure that sufficient numbers of these pollinators are present in a healthy system. The system of food production developed by humans has necessitated the provision of large numbers of pollinators in concentrated areas of broad acreage.

Valley Bees has a commitment to this philosophy by focusing on the nurturing of the Australian native bee populations in balance with the management of the honeybee.

There are over 1500 bees native to Australia. The better-known are the stingless social bees but there are also many solitary native bees contributing to the health of our environment, including the blue banded, carpenter, reed, resin and green metallic. The honey bee (Apis mellifera) was introduced from 1824 to provide honey and pollination." (from Valley Bees Information Flyer)
