INTRODUCING BENEDICT HUGHES FROM THE PRACTICAL BEEKEEPER AND POLLINATOR ALLIANCE

www.thepracticalbeekeeper.com.au

www.facebook.com/PollinatorAlliance

Benedict is The Practical Beekeeper, a fully-qualified trainer and well-known registered beekeeper. He collects swarms, manages hives, extracts honey, delivers educational courses and loves bees.

Benedict is the resident Beekeeper at Ceres (Centre for Education and Research in Environmental
Strategies) and is approved by the City of Darebin to keep bees in Darebin Parklands and Bundoora
Park. He regularly runs school incursions about bees and beekeeping, and delivers adult
educational courses at Melbourne Polytechnic and CERES in Brunswick as well as at Edendale
Community Environment Farm in Eltham.

Benedict is the founding President of The Australian Pollinator Alliance, a not-for-profit
dedicated to promoting the health of bees and all pollinators, critical to our food and natural
environment, through education, research and conservation.

Recently, Benedict secured a $199,615 community grant via Pick My Project to deliver honeybee education and give backyard beekeepers resources and support.

Benedict was a finalist in the 2018 Darebin Pitch It competition.

Over breakfast, Benedict will discuss:

  • Tips on pitching to investors
  • His experience as a social entrepreneur
  • How he has turned his passion for beekeeping into a viable business, identifying and pursuing key problem areas to have the most social and environmental impact
  • Balancing multiple businesses successfully (Practical Beekeeper, Pollinator Alliance, CERES Bee Group)
  • And much more!
