Have you ever thought you might like to have your own bee hive, become an amateur beekeeper and harvest your own honey, and in doing so play your part in helping the environment?

This might be easier than you realise, as Les Thomson, Cairns & District Beekeepers Association vice president, will explain at a presentation to the Friends of the Botanic Gardens in June. 

In his two-part presentation Les will focus on backyard beekeeping as well as speaking about newsworthy related issues, such as honey adulteration, pollinator loss and the benefits of re-establishing the urban environment. 

This is a perfect opportunity to learn how both urban and rural residents can both support and grow the bee population in what could become a productive hobby. The talk is open to everyone and starts at 9.30am in the Gardens visitor centre. Entry is via a gold coin donation and morning tea will be available.
