Event Description

*This event has been re-listed - apologies to those who had rsvp'd already!*

Please RSVP for this event. Bob would like to keep the group relatively small.
Bob has graciously offered to allow us to visit his property at Highvale (just outside Samford) for an informal garden visit and chance to
chat with Bob about native bees.
He would also like some advice in return on plants in his garden.
We are very lucky to have an expert like Bob right on our doorstep. He has over 100 native bee hives at his property.
Please bring chairs and a small amount of food and drink to share for morning tea.
I will bring the tea and coffee.
I'm waiting for a start time to be confirmed - will put 10am for the time being.

....and wear suitable shoes for wet slippery ground.

Needless to say with the weather damp, layer up and bring some brollies people. Bob is not averse to a bit of wet weather so the day will go ahead as normal.

Time was never confirmed Valerie (lots of emails between Bob and myself over the months but pinning him down on some things has proven elusive) and as it has been relisted by Farina I don't have the capacity to reword the listing.

10am will be the start time. Come when you can, we'll be roaming around the property somewhere, it's not that big.

Hi Lissa, is the time confirmed as 10 to 12? (Still negotiating on soccer...)

No white ones yet Susanne, they'll be a way off. No plant as yet! Keep an eye on my photos and ask again when you see me posting pics of the white ones.

Bummer Tracey :(
