Course description

Learn beekeeping in Sydney for beginners.

Bees from city bee yards are said to be healthier and more productive than their country cousins. Their presence also provides cities with enormous environmental benefits as they pollinate a wide variety of native plants that otherwise may struggle in urban environs. Keeping bees is also a great way to nurture your own garden and produce wonderful fruit and veggies.

However, bees are under constant threat from urbanisation and the over-use of insecticide. Here in Australia we are lucky enough to be the only country in the world with a healthy bee population and beekeepers across the nation are working hard to keep it that way. Get involved and find out how to keep bees in your own backyard.

This Urban Beekeeping for Beginners Class looks at the principles of backyard and urban beekeeping and gives students a basic knowledge of European Honeybees as well as our own native bees. .
