You don’t need to be a bee keeper, be a keeper of bees…

by making our outdoor spaces a welcoming habitat for both new and existing bees and pollinators. Without bees and other pollinators much of the world’s food supply would end so it’s critical to support these essential links in our global food chain.

It’s Australian Pollinator Week!

12th – 20th November 2022

Australian Pollinator Week acknowledges our important and unique insect pollinators during our southern spring (November). It is a designated week when communities, businesses and organisations can come together to raise awareness of the importance of pollinators and support their needs.

Through group activities, community members can learn and laugh together as they help to support our pollinators. By engaging communities in schools, retirement villages, art groups, gardening clubs, community gardens, local council areas, Landcare groups and neighbourhoods we can increase awareness and act on our increased knowledge.
