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.

Cave Urban is a Sydney based international collective dedicated to the study, design and practical application of passive sustainable systems for living. What began as research in 2010 has developed into the intersection of art and architecture through the use of bamboo. Key areas of interest include sustainable house design, renewable energy systems, resource recycling and the use of bamboo as a low-energy, renewable structural building material.

Cave Urban’s projects involve the participation of the local community, universities and artists, fostering cross cultural exchange and collaboration with artists such as Wang Wen-Chih (Taiwan), Georges Cuvillier (Belgium), Amir Rabik (Indonesia), Carolina Pinto (Chile) and Markus Tatton (Australia).  Cave Urban has partnerships with many organisations including; Opera Australia, MONA, Clemenger, University of Tasmania, UNSW, Sydney City Council, Royal Botanical Gardens, Australian National Botanical Gardens, Brisbane City Council and the Woodford Folk Festival.

Permaculture Northern Beaches will be hosting one of the co-founders of Cave Urban at our monthly meeting. Please come along and join us to learn how bamboo can be utilised to create beautiful and sustainable structures.

We will have a swap table to share the abundance from your garden and home, such as small potted plants, crops, and books. There will also be organic teas and coffee available, please bring a plate of food to share. All welcome, entry is by donation for hall hire costs.
