Free into to Bees – Camberwell

FREE INTRODUCTION TO BEEKEEPING WORKSHOP!

As part of the existing Boroondara community interested in environmental and sustainability issues, we thought you may be interested in joining the 10,000 registered beekeepers in Australia and participating in a free workshop being held on the 22 September 2011 at the Camberwell Civic Centre (8 Inglesby Road, Camberwell) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

Beekeeping is a great way to provide your family and friends with tasty honey and useful products. It is also a great way to increase pollination and crop yield in your own and your neighbours garden! In this workshop, Boroondara resident expert Kerin O’Brien, will show you the basics of beekeeping, taking you through how to build your own hive, look after the colony and harvest the honey and beeswax. If you are interested in starting up this new past time, or just want to know more please register to attend.

Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 9278 4873 or visiting our website: www.boroondara.vic.gov.au/living-for-our-future and a poster is attached for your reference.

Light organic refreshments will be served on the night.
