Bee Workshops - Amelie Ecology


Sponsored by Gormans Removals

Adult Workshop: Bring native bees to your backyard!

With over 2000 species of native bees in Australia, there’s a lot we can do to care for them in our own backyards! Wondering what to plant? Where they live? What their needs are?  In this interactive workshop, Dr Amelie Vanderstock (Amelie Ecology) will share the diversity, ecology and how we can care for the native bees at our doorstep. Together we’ll share strategies to design our garden spaces to be more pollinator friendly.

Childrens workshop: The buzz on native bees!

Green bees, blue bees and bees that burrow?  Did you know that there are over 2000 native bees in Australia? Through games, music and artmaking we will discover the bees (K)needs- and what we can do to support them! A family friendly workshop for children and children-at-heart.

Their show invites human bee-ings of all ages to buzz as blue banded bees, to grow from seeds into tall trees, and to sing as a choir of bacteria... Always with a magnifying glass and ukulele in hand, Let’s BEE Scientists!
