About

Where would we be without bees? As far as important species go, they are top of the list. They are critical pollinators: they pollinate 70% of the plant species that feed 90% of the world. There is a lot of emphases being placed on both honeybees and Australian native stingless bees but little is ever said about our solitary native bees. Australia has 1500 native bee species of which most of them are solitary. If you want to preserve these solitary native bees build them some habitat in your garden. Join Keith Upward as he teaches how to make some basic solitary bee/insect hotels. In this “hands-on” Workshop Keith will demonstrate how to make a small Bee Hotel using recycled materials and a minimum of power tools. He will provide cutting aids and materials. Some Bee hotels made on the day will be available for a small purchase price to cover materials. There will be some tools available for use on the day, however, you are more than welcome to bring along your own favourite small hand saw, portable drill and hammer.

Tea & coffee will be served after the event, please bring your own mug as YCG strives to host waste free workshops. Also note the workshops are all weather events (rain or shine).
