In conjunction with the Heritage Festival, 2017 our club opened its’ doors to the wider community with an open day. Visitors from the Sutherland Shire, near and far came to our Bee Gardens at Sutherland to see the bees and join in the fun.
We had many families including children, mums and dads throw on a bee suit to get their hands on the bee hives, enjoy a sausage sizzle and a cuppa. Thanks to all those that helped and everyone that visited us on the day.
Emmanuel has been beekeeping since 2013 and is an active member of the Illawarra Branch of the ABA. He has his own backyard apiary in Sydney's inner west, collects swarms, runs a small website to promote awareness of bees in our environment called saveourbees.com.au and helps with the iT related tasks of our branch.
