Bee-Friendly Backyards

May 17, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Bees pollinate around two thirds of Australia’s food and yet their numbers are declining rapidly worldwide due to pesticides, diseases, monocropping, flowerless landscapes and decreases in their gene pool. There is a lot we can do in our own backyards and communities to help our bees thrive and support the variety of interconnected plant and animal life in our gardens.
Come and hear from Helen from ACT for Bees and beekeeper Dermot who will show you simple steps towards a bee-friendly backyard and how to increase and support your local bee populations.
