Saturday, 24th of February 9:00am – Yandina Community Gardens – BUILD YOUR OWN SOLITARY BEE/INSECT HOTEL WITH KEITH UPWARD $5.00–$15.00
Feb 24, 2018 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM$20 – $25
Where would we be without bees? As far as important species go, they are top of the list. They are critical pollinators: they pollinate 70% of the plant species that feed 90% of the world. There is a lot of emphases being placed on both honeybees and Australian native stingless bees but little is ever said about our solitary native bees. Australia has 1500 native bee species of which most of them are solitary. If you want to preserve these solitary native bees build them some habitat in your garden. Join Keith Upward as he teaches how to make some basic solitary bee/insect hotels.
Duration: 3.5 hours (9-12.30pm)
Workshop Cost: $5 for members, $15 for non-members
