Open Day 5th May 2018: Come See The Bees

Following the success of the open day last year, we are happy to announce our club is once again opening its’ doors to the wider community on the 5th May 2018.   This is a great opportunity for everyone to visit the Bee Gardens at Sutherland and learn all about bees in our community.

The day will include inspecting a working beehive with the use of our protective bee clothing. And we haven’t forgotten the kids with small clothing available for children to wear and a special kids corner with bee-themed activities.

The day will also feature informative talks on beekeeping, the life of a worker bee and native bees, honey tastings and sales provided by club members, books on beekeeping along with wax products.

We will also host a sausage sizzle with coffee, tea and cold drinks available. Raffles with prizes including a beekeeping course for beginners (value $299), honey, books and lots lots more.

There will be regular information sessions at the top of each hour from 10 am to 2 pm featuring:
