This year we shared our tent with the Holsworthy BeeKeepers. The beekeepers use the coach house out at our Dunsland site (near Holsworthy), as there base and training venue. Our annual stand at the show was inundated with visitors who were keen to learn and ask questions about all things bee-ey. They also sold honey and made candles from beeswax. In the other half of the tent, we made bug hotels from recycled pipe and tree guards which proved a popular activity, ticking off one activity from our 50 things to do campaign.
What a bee-rilliant day!
