Katrina Forstner, founder of Buzz and Dig, will introduce your family to native bees, pollination and increasing urban biodiversity. This session aims to bring joy and wonder to children in as they discover insect biodiversity and urban sustainability on a micro level in the garden. Nurturing a sense of respect and excitement to living creatures, whilst learning about the important role bees have to play, enables us to grow healthy food. Attendees will make a bee-friendly hotel with natural and recycled materials to take home.

Participants are asked to bring a 400ml empty recycled tin can (to make a bee hotel).

This event is part of the Darebin Backyard Harvest Festival.
