Financial Support



To encourage people to be aware of nature especially the bees and pollinators around us and what they give us



We collected together people from many different areas to mingle with each other and encouraged them to share their experiences in anything Honey related.



An event to bring Bee Awareness to the public



  1. Awareness of bees
  2. How to help them now and in the future
  3.  What not to do for them

Project More Info

We reached out to people letting them know about the need to help all bees and pollinators with information in many different areas, a booklet on bees for the very young, Native bee hotels (made by a local Men’s Shed and put together by some schools), A beekeepers stand with a display of bees, bee products and some fun items.

Reminding people that having gardens with flowers helps the bees too. Need to have water on hand for bees with stepping stones such as bark, stones, wood, etc so that they won’t drown.

Getting involved with the honey tasting, photographic competition, baking competition and Diorama Bee Displays, Face painting.

We covered from the very young to older adults and all between with crafts, book reading, treasure hunt, information and gardening advice.


Everyone had a fabulous day and they are still asking when we are going to do it again.
