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.
