Backyard Beekeeping for Beginners

BeeSustainable_Robert in Hive.jpegThis workshop is being offered as both an in-person experience (up to 25 people) and on-line via Zoom. Please choose your preferred ticket option in Eventbrite.

In this workshop Robert from Bee Sustainable will give participants a basic understanding of bee behaviour, establishing and managing a hive, and the items that make up a bee hive and their construction. There will be live bees and honeycomb to look at in a secure exhibition cabinet during the discussion of bee behaviour and hive management.

The workshop will also cover the equipment a beekeeper needs to work with bees, key tasks in spring, honey extraction and swarm control. No experience is necessary to attend.

This My Smart Garden workshop is proudly presented by Merri-bek City Council. Please note that this is an event for City of Merri-bek / Melbourne residents only.
