How we help to save the bees

Kindergarten classes

Alex provides a fun and engaging play-based learning experience to kindergarten children. Sessions take approximately 45 min - one hour, and incorporate song, imaginative play, the opportunity to get up close and personal with a safely contained stingless bee colony, and also taste stingless bee honey (subject to availability). Kindergartens with an established colony may also like to incorporate a colony split (terms and conditions apply).

Workshops

Alex presents enjoyable and dynamic workshops to adults, introducing them to the magical world of native bees. Sessions are upwards of four hours, located in Kerry (15 minutes beyond Beaudesert, Scenic Rim). Sessions take place on an awe-inspiring productive farm called Tullamore Farm, and include an introduction to both our solitary bees, and our social stingless bees. A tasting platter of freshly harvested fruits, right off the farm, is offered for morning tea, as well as tea/coffee. Visit www.tullamorefarm.com.au for event details.

Bee hive rescue

Alex provides a rescue service for inappropriately placed hives. Sometimes beehive boxes are weathered beyond repair and the colony needs to be re-boxed for their own safety. Or if you discover a colony in a fallen tree/limb, Alex can provide a rescue service to ensure the colony is re-homed safely. Call her on 0478 784 719 to discuss.
