Bee Keeping talk

At tonight's meeting hear about native and European honey bees and what PNB is doing as part of our bee program on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Native bees are an important part of our biodiversity chain as well as a great source of nutritious honey.

Sydney has over 200 species of native bees many of which are solitary bees that require habitat in our gardens. You can also promote bees by providing a chemical free garden for them to pollinate. PNB has a program for selling native bees hives to supporters or program hives for free to community organisations. More information on this and a lot more will be available on the night.

Paul Hoskinson is the bee team leader for PNB and also was a key driver in the setting up of the Northern Beaches Beekeepers Association.

"If bees were to disappear for the globe, humankind would have only four years left to live"  Albert Einstein.  Bees help us with pollination and are a vital part of our ecosystem. This will be a night not to be missed!

Doors open 7:15 pm at Banksia Room, Nelson Heather Centre, Warriewood, 5 Jacksons Rd. All welcome, entry by donation

There will also be a swap table - enjoy honey tasting +  bring along plants, books, pots to swap or a plate of food to share.  Organic teas and coffee available, bring a plate of food to share also.
