WHY NATIVE BEES?

When we think of pollinators, our minds jump to the European honeybee. But there are many other insects that pollinate plants, including over 800 different species of WA local bees that have been here for millenia! Native Bees are special; they're solitary, shy and stingless. They're also MASTER POLLINATORS; crucial to healthy ecosystems in our backyards, bushland & forests. And they need a hand with habitat!

"I've been an avid gardener for over 30 years and I'm amazed that I didn't know about native bees this whole time. Thank you Tracy for your wonderful talk and opening up a whole new exciting element to my gardening. I'm going to go and design my bee hotel and I can't wait for Spring". ~ Beth


ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

After a sell-out Native Bee seminar last year, WA's 'Queen of the Native Bees' Tracy Lansdell returns to Margaret River by popular demand! Tracy is a natural medicine practitioner & passionate gardener who has been educating people how to care for bees in their gardens since 2013. She says 'once you discover these incredible little bee-ings in your backyard you will fall in love with them as much as I have.'


TICKETS:

We're dedicated to making biodiversity education accessible to all, so tickets are only $5 per person (plus GST + booking fee).

5-12 years old = need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian participant with their own ticket. The activity involves cutting using secateurs so parent/guardians must supervise!

ADULTS this workshop is for you too. Native Bees are key to the continuation of WA's beautiful endemic flora & they need our help!
