All About Bees

November 25 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am


Buzz along to hear all about bees and beekeeping. 

A repeat of the popular workshop by Lesley Hurst from Bee Awesome He Pi Miharo will show us some simple ideas we can use to help the bees and the basics of getting started in beekeeping. If the weather is suitable, the beehive will be opened for those interested in getting a closer look at these intriguing insects. Beekeeper suits in adult to children’s sizes will be available.

All ages are welcome – qualify for a Children’s University stamp.

Our presenter Lesley has advised us, that if the morning is too cool it is unwise to open up the hive. If this is the case we will cancel the workshop. A decision will be made by 9 am. Please contact us by text or a phone call to find whether the workshop is definitely on or not. Thanks Ruth, 021 074 3905.

Sales table; also donations appreciated to support Bee Awesome and the Community Gardens.
