Native Bee & Biodiversity Workshops Overview:

Community Native Backyard Bee Workshop

Seed Harvest Spoon provides an introduction and insight into the curious life of native bees for the backyard bee enthusiast. Our community workshop is informative and hands-on, and can be held in the heart of your community garden.

Our Community workshop will highlight ecology, colony behaviour, bee identification, pollination, habitat and more. Participants will learn how they can encourage native social and solitary bee varieties to their backyard garden to promote pollination and local biodiversity.

Chat with Seed Harvest Spoon's backyard beekeepers Michelle Carrick and Natalie Er about their personal experience and passion for bees, construct a native bee habitat and explore our recommended range of resources and books.

Place an order to own your own ‘Sugarbag’ hive. 

This workshop can be tailored to your community learning needs and we can propagate your existing Native Tetragonula Carbonaria "Sugarbag" hive during the workshop (depending on suitable conditions.
