Backyard Bee Keeping – 3rd August

7 July, 2017

Backyard Beekeeping is becoming increasingly popular and is something most people can do.  Keeping bees is a rewarding pass time because as many beekeepers will tell you, there’s nothing quite like harvesting your own honey, all the while knowing that the bees are helping to pollinate gardens, crops and native vegetation all around you.

Covering all the basics that you need to know to get started in small scale bee keeping, Mike James from the Wagga Wagga Amateur Beekeeping Group is the guest speaker for Riverina Highlands Landcare Network’s annual winter warmer dinner.

Mike will walk through the types of hives, the basic equipment needed and the do and dont’s of backyard beekeeping.
