This workshop is presented by Dr. Tobias Smith, a native bee researcher, university lecturer, community educator and professional stingless bee keeper.

In this workshop Tobias will introduce us to the amazing diversity of Australia's native bees.

The first part of the workshop focuses on the secret lives of solitary bees, such as blue banded bees, cuckoo bees, leaf cutter bees and many others. The workshop then moves on to the honey-making native stingless bees and how to keep them in boxes.

The workshop includes a practical demonstration in which a live stingless bee hive is opened, and participants can see inside and taste the honey. The workshop also covers other topics, including conservation of native bees, making bee hotels, and supporting native bees in gardens.
