Bee enthusiasts wanting to know more about the bee-autiful insects will be treated to a special workshop at the Bundaberg Library next month.
Bundaberg Regional Libraries staff have partnered with Bundaberg Beekeepers Association to host the event, providing the community the chance to learn everything they need to know about bees.
The workshop will provide a discussion about how to care for bees from members of the association and will feature an enclosed perspex beehive to showcase the inner workings of what goes on in a beehive.
The discussion will be focused on European honeybees but will also include some talk on Australian native bees.
Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said this was a unique opportunity to learn the basics of beekeeping.
“After noticing an increased interest in the books on bees and beekeeping, our libraries staff have done a great job of working with the Bundaberg Beekeeping Association to bring this event to life,” Cr Learmonth said.
“This session is a great example of the range of opportunities the library provides to the community, with an information session such as this a unique opportunity to find out all you need to know about bee keeping.
“This event will teach everything from the basics right through to the workings of a beehive, with the chance to ask questions of the very knowledgeable Bundaberg Beekeepers Association.”
The Bundaberg Beekeepers Association is made up of local, friendly and like-minded people who share a passion for bees.
Group members are happy to assist with the removal of bees, can help you get started in beekeeping and are always wanting new members to join the club.
Registration is required for the upcoming workshop, with more information available here.
