We invite you to join us to hear our guest presenter David Briggs provide a fascinating introduction to the work of bee keeping in commercial agriculture.
David will cover the biology of honey bees, the role of bees in agriculture and the interactions between beekeeping and the natural environment. Honey production in Australia is about 80% dependent on native [predominantly Eucalypt] flora.
He will discuss the sporadic flowering patterns of our Eucalypts and how this has shaped beekeeping in Australia.
For catering purposes, please RSVP online or call Sally by 18th March.
This is a FREE event supported by the Victorian Landcare Grants Program.
Dinner will be served at 6pm, followed by a short AGM at 7pm. The presentation will commence at 7.15pm.
