Yandina Community Gardens is blessed with a lot of plant resources that assist the Australian Stingless bees to thrive in the gardens. Spend a morning with Mel Marx exploring and understanding Australian Stingless bees, knowing when they are ready to split and caring for them after the split. On the day we will be splitting one of the Australian Stingless beehives on the YCG site.
About the presenter:
Mel Marx is an avid Australian Stingless beekeeper and works with Bob Luttrell to rescue and rehome bee colonies from water meter boxes. She lives on a 100-acre property North of Yandina and is currently creating habitat for the bees by planting native plant and tree species on her property. She hopes to get a Native Stingless bee honey industry up and running working with other beekeepers to make this exceptional honey with its incredible medicinal properties available to more people.
