AirBee N Bee – Honey & Hive

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

27 Sep 2022 to 30 Apr 2023 Weekly Event

Bees are one of the marvels of nature and have been studied, observed and mythologised since Egyptian times. In this unique experience, you’ll join a passionate beekeeper amongst his hives, suited up and surrounded by bees.

You start the experience with a honey tasting of up to ten different honeys. The taste, texture, viscosity, colour and aromas are linked directly to the floral sources available to the bees who make this liquid gold from the bush and gardens around Hamish’s apiary. Over morning tea you’ll hear about the fascinating life-cycle of this remarkable pollinator and the important part bees play in the food cycle before then suiting up in a professional full-length beekeepers suit (and gloves) and moving to the hives. You’ll be shown through the different styles of hive, including the Flow Hive, and be guided through the process of an inspection, checking the laying pattern of the queen, and checking for honey, and health. If you’re lucky you’ll find “Liz”, the queen of the colony!
