Event description
SOW GROW GRAZE: Green @ Kathleen Learn the basics of beekeeping and build a native bee hotel to take home!

About this Event

In this dynamic workshop we'll cover three topics; keeping honey bees in urban Melbourne, how to help the bees even if you don't keep them and how to build a native bee hotel!

This session is a perfect beginners class to help you work out whether you're interested in keeping your own hive - we'll talk about the time and cost commitment, as well as what you can expect from your hive. On top of that, we'll discuss ways to support bees in your home and backyard, including what to plant to attract these essential pollinators. After we finish up with discussing native bee hotels, there will be some materials and equipment for you to construct your own simple bee hotel for the backyard.

Coming along to this workshop is the perfect opportunity to learn some fascinating bee trivia and make a plan for your future with bees!
