Event Description

Top bar beekeeping workshop

Sunday May 15, 9-12noon

I am holding a top bar beekeeping workshop in Alderley, Brisbane on Sunday May 15 from 9 to 12noon (includes a tea break).

This is a beginners workshop for those who would like to get some up-close experience with European honeybees in a top bar hive. You may be interested in keeping a hive and want to gain confidence and basic knowledge or just to find out if beekeeping is for you.

We will safely explore the basic activities of beekeeping including initial setup, hive inspection and honey extraction.

Veils will be supplied (unless you have your own protective gear – please advise).

Please wear light coloured, long sleeved shirts, trousers and closed shoes, socks, leather gloves and a hat.

Cost is $45, $75 for couples

Numbers are limited. Please book via email to or phone 0414 333 069 before May 6.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
