Educational Talks & Workshops
Host or participate in our educational talks and workshops
We offer the opportunity for schools, community organisations, and more to book educational talks or workshops. We also periodically host independent educational talks or workshops for the general public to participate it.
Our expert beekeepers take full care of the beehives offered in this service to provide a completely hassle free experience. This includes installation, periodic maintenance, health monitoring, and hive replacement should the bees fall ill.
Our beehives are protected by a tough and attractive hardwood box, decorated with an authentic, local Indigenous artwork (representing the significant connection that many Aboriginal people have with native bees) on the roof.
Importantly, our bees are completely stingless and therefore pose no stinging risk to passers-by.
Our educational talks can be highly customised to suit, for example, the topics that your students are currently studying - for example life cycle, pollination, agriculture, and more. Talks can be made suitable for any age group.
Educational talks can optionally include a demonstration of an Australian Native Beehive duplication, a fascinating process that provides an insight into the internals of a beehive. This is only available in Spring-Summer.
Our hand-on workshops are ideal for a more comprehensive education on native bees. These can be customised, but generally include an overall introduction to native bees (and specifically stingless bees), looking at a native beehive and how to care for it, a hive duplication, honey tasting, and time for questions. Some aspects of workshops are available only during Spring-Summer.
