NaturallyGC :Bee-utiful Native Stingless Bees

Are you ready to be a bee keeper? A native bee keeper, that is.

Australia is home to some 1,700 species of native bee. Most native bee species are solitary with just 11 species living in colonies. These social bees can be kept in hives, produce honey and don’t sting!

Come along to this workshop and learn the basics on native bees and the important role they play in our environment. We will get to know the inner life of these lovely pollinators and see a live hive. You will pick up lots of tips on managing the native social bees, including how to extract honey from them and propagate colonies.
