Event Description

Saturday 24th April 2017
9am – 4pm: Native Stingless Bees – with Dr Tobias Smith presenting Tim Heard’s workshop

This workshop alternates between slide presentations and practical sessions to build a strong foundation of knowledge and experience. The presentations cover the topics of bee nesting, bee foraging, diversity of wild bees, importance of bees in natural systems, traditional stingless beekeeping around the world, modern stingless beekeeping in Australia, using stingless bees for pollination of gardens and farms, sugarbag honey and its properties, rescuing bees threatened in the wild, and more. Practical demonstrations cover hive design, splitting hives to propagate new ones, extracting honey. If available, we also transfer a colony from a natural location into a hive. Please let Tim know if you think you have a suitable colony to use for this demonstration. It will be transferred by an experienced bee keeper and you get to take home the hive at the end.

Cost: $85/$65 Health Care Card Holder  + Booking Fee. For Bookings Click Here

NSCF ad for this workshop states Saturday 24th April but that is obviously incorrect and have listed it for 22nd. I have asked for clarification.

If you're thinking of attending make sure you check the date first.
