bee gardening with matthew lunn
After last year's successful gardening experience for the family with "Potting Paradise",
this year join Matthew Lunn for another potting experience as the kids learn all about bees in the garden
and learn how to create a bee garden and what bees see, smell and how they make honey.
Matthew is a familiar radio gardening personality within the community,
as he can be heard on Curtin Fm 100.1 every Saturday morning presenting "Letís Talk Gardening".
This he has done for 14 years.
Living locally with his family in Mount Helena he first came involved with the SFFD last year
and quickly turned "Potting Paradise" into a friendly family hands-on experience
where children and parents could pot away and learn all about making plants grow.
It was a planting success with many coloufully painted pots leaving the show.
This year Matthew wants to combine his love of bee keeping with plants
and show how both are important in our everyday lives
as well as showing that bees are far more friendly than their sting makes them be.
So BEE inspired and learn all about bees with Matthew
and judge what your favourite honey is and win a $100 vegetable gardening kit.
a fun and informative day out for families
