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.
