Queen Bee Laying

Let’s Talk About Bees

Overview

Join a thought provoking panel discussion on the intersection of bees, the threat of Varroa mite in Australia, and the critical link to food security. Delve into the challenges faced by native pollinators and explore sustainable solutions with experts in the field Kelly Lees and David Siyver. The panel is inspired by the delicate honey bee paintings of Deidre But-Husaim and her interest in the role of bees in environmental systems.

The panelists will discuss the impact of varroa mites on European honey bees in the Hunter Valley, the future of beekeeping the region, and the opportunities this provides for native pollinators.

Throughout the discussion, participants will discover the role everyone can play in supporting these essential creatures at home through the creation of bee friendly habitats. Engage in a conversation that transcends borders and highlights the interconnectedness of ecosystems, offering actionable insights for a more resilient and pollinator friendly future.

This event will provide an insightful dialogue where science meets art, sparking inspiration for positive change.

The Maitland City Council Sustainability team will be giving away very special bee friendly seedlings to each event ticket holder.
