​The opportunity to get the ‘buzz’ on the many amazing species of stingless native bees, and learn why they are important for pollinating our flowers and fruits is coming this summer.

Two Bee Keeping Workshops are scheduled to be held in Canterbury-Bankstown, aimed at teaching people about the importance of bees in our ecosystem and how to make our gardens safe for them.

Information sessions, hive splitting and honey tasting will be on offer at Chester Hill Community Gardens, on Sunday 24 November (11am-1pm).

Mayor Khal Asfour said the Native Bee Keeping Workshops aim to involve the community in an interesting and important process.

“Interest in keeping bees and specifically stingless native bees is growing rapidly in Australia and, without them, plant species would not be able to survive,” he said.

“So, we have introduced community workshops which promote creating homes for native bees and pollinating insects.

“With more than 1,600 species of native bees and pollinator insects located in Canterbury-Bankstown, it is important we try our best to protect them.”

A second Bee Keeping Workshop will be held on Sunday 8 December (11am-1pm), at Riverwood Community Gardens.
