Honey Month 2019
It’s that sweet time of the year when all things bees and honey are promoted in Western Australia for the month of May.
We have lots of exciting bee and honey themed events arranged for you around the Perth Metropolitan area throughout May. Beekeeping displays, Honey themed degustation dinners and honey themed menus, meet the beekeeper, tour beekeeping facilities, honey talks and much more. See the BICWA website for details. www.bicwa.com.au/events.
This year sees the Honey festival move to join the well-established Gidgegannup Small Farm Field Day on Sunday May 26th. This event has many synergies with our beekeeping industry in that it is promoting sustainability and that’s just what keeping bees is all about.
As usual we will have lots of exciting stalls for you to visit plus our Honey Cake and Honey competitions, all details for these are on the BICWA website.
The Scitech Gang will be on hand to paint faces, create wonderful experiments and just make heaps of fun and entertainment for the little ones. The crew from UWA will also bring along a display hive of bees so that you can all get an insight into how it is to be ‘as busy as a bee’.
The children can follow the pollination activity trail and learn some fun facts along the way.
A massive thank you to all our sponsors that without their support we would not be able to continue with our event.
