"I think you’re right Stevo. In the early days, I was getting inquiries from people who had ordered a flow hive and had no idea what to do next. So I emailed the flow guys suggesting they needed to emphasise beekeeping in their advertising…"

"Hi everyone, Firstly my disclaimer – I build and supply top bar hives and love them! I prefer them as they are close to being a natural environment and they are gentle on the bees (even when harvesting). The flow hive has arrived with much…"

"You might want to revisit a doc I sent some time ago - basically add bars into the brood - you will get brood. Add them at the ends you will get honey - a bit simplistic but u get the gist :)"

"Hi Lissa, I just had a reread of your 22/12 post and it sounds like you added new bars into the brood. They would build new brood on these bars thereby pushing the existing brood further out. To maximise honey production, insert bars towards the…"

"Bees are at their least aggressive when swarming - no hive to defend, just looking for a new home. They park themselves for 2 or 3 days whilst scouting for suitable homes. During this period they are easily captured and rehomed with very little risk…"

"Absolutely agree Charles, but the Dept of Ag requires that "Honeybee colonies must be managed to prevent or minimise swarming". That's not really in the bees interests of course and if the bees swarm when we have our backs turned,…"

"Hi Lissa, Sounds like you and the bees are making great progress :) Assuming you are adding new bars close to the ends of the hive and not into the brood, yes, you can harvest the honey bars towards the end. They are unlikely to swarm before spring…"

Paul Wood replied to Lissa's discussion Lissa's top bar beehive :) in the group Bees - native and honey
"Hi Lissa, Sounds like you're going well. remember mistakes are mandatory and the bees forget very quickly! My philosophy is that if the bees want to put brood in all the bars, that’s a decision I’m not going to argue with. We…"

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the friend request. It was great to meet you and Paul really enjoyed having a chat with you too. Cindy kindly brought some pigeon pea cuttings so I am going to plant them in the chook pen as you suggested (fenced off to preserve the roots!) Any time you are passing come in for a cuppa.

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.

 

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
