Did you know that Australia is home to over 1,700 bee species? Our buzzing buddies are an integral part of our biodiversity, playing a vital role in pollinating our plants.
In this workshop we’ll dive into their world by building biodiversity and sustainability in your backyard, learning all about native bees, their important role in pollination and how to create a bee haven!

After building our AirBee&Bees we’ll create bee bombs for your garden, chock full of seeds they love!
