Katrina Forstner will tell you all about native bees, their important role in pollination and how to create a bee haven. You’ll get the low down on Australia’s native bees, how to identify them, the co-evolution of bees with flowering plants, nesting behaviours, buzz pollination and blue-banded bees, creating a bee-friendly habitat, increasing insect biodiversity and the plight of the commercial honeybee population, as well as getting your hands dirty building a bee hotel out of recycled timber and suitable nest materials. You will also create some bee bombs for your garden, chock full of seeds they love!
