Community Forum: “Important Honey Flora”, Thursday, 1 March 2018

We know that bees produce honey, right?

Do you know what bees need in order to make the honey?

You can learn more about this at a community forum on “Important Honey Flora” being held on Thursday, 1st March, 7pm – 9pm at the Toowoomba City Library (Level 3, Cnr Herries and Victoria Sts, Toowoomba).

(Ironbark flowers)

The forum, hosted by Householders’ Options to Protect the Environment (HOPE) Inc., features Mr. Glen Tucker, President of Southern Beekeepers Association.

The Southern Beekeepers Association services the Toowoomba Region and surrounds for those interested in keeping bees.

Mr Tucker will be giving a presentation on “Honey Flora of southeast Queensland”. Information included in this presentation will be on the basic requirements of bees for honey production, as well as some detail on the most important trees and other flora for honey production, including information about botanical identification of these species.

The formal presentation will go for about 40 minutes and there will be time for questions after the presentation.
