It was fantastic wasn't it :) Second one of tim's talks I've been to but there's so much info to pick up I always learn something new.

Got to buy an empty box to split my own hive now. Hmm

Glad you enjoyed it Sean and Libby. I was going to say "hi", but I looked around but there were so many couples and over 40 people present, I didn't know who you were without making an announcement ;)

Had a great day today. When others have the option of attending, please do. It's well worth it.

I did add info about registering and cost for this workshop about a week ago - hope you all noticed that you need to book and prepay for this event if you hope to attend. Numbers are limited.

Just follow the link and instructions in the event listing.

Yep.  This is yet another thing I've been thinking about.  The little fellas don't produce a lot of honey, but I reckon I could get a great honey liquor from them - and help the Ozzie bush at the same time. Not sure about this particular group but up until now, cost has been prohibitive for me.

I can recommend the ANBees email group. From beginners to advanced and academics the members are quick to answer questions with good explanations.

There are many workshops - check out which are in your area and make contact.

I have taken a guess at the Moreton Shire times as information was a bit on the lean side and will get these and cost, if there is one, confirmed.
