These fun, interactive and informal workshops are another opportunity to spend an inspiring evening with some awesome people. Your ticket includes delicious healthy snacks, a special guest speaker and some goodies to take home with you.

This workshop will expand on the topic of our last inspiring film - Vanishing of the Bees. You'll learn more about the fascinating lives of bees, their importance in our ecosystem and for our food supply, and get some practical tips about what you can do to help them survive!

Did you know that we need bees to pollinate over 30% of the food we eat? If we lose bees we lose mangoes, strawberries, nectarines, tomatoes, celery, macadamias, brazil nuts, almonds, cherries, pears, lemons, vanilla, broccoli, cauliflower and eggplant - just to name a few! And our bees are in serious danger from pesticides and urban sprawl.

We are very excited to have Paul Wood from Brisbane Backyard Bees as our special guest speaker. Paul is a passionate beekeeper and can't wait to tell you all about these fascinating creatures. In this interactive workshop you will:

  • find out what is happening to the bees and why
  • learn practical and simple things YOU can do to help
  • learn how a bee colony works (absolutely fascinating!)
  • see how you can start your own backyard bee hive and harvest your own delicious honey
  • taste-test honey from native stingless bees and european bees
  • get your own small jar of delicious local honey to take home with you as well as some fantastic discount vouchers!

If you eat fruit, vegetables, nuts or seeds (and I hope you do!) - this workshop is for you! Even if you don't have the space to keep bees yourself or you're allergic to them, there is still so much you can do to help these incredibly important creatures survive. Come along for a fun night out and learn how.

These fantastic workshops are limited to a maximum of 50 participants so book your seat now to ensure you don't miss out!
