This month, instead of holding a meeting, the CCNBA manned a stall at the annual Cassowary Coast Feast of The Senses festival.
The week long festival aims to showcase the region’s impressive range of rare and exotic fruits and produce, and events are held throughout the week of the festival. The festival culminates in a market day with a variety of stalls, including our native bee stall.
The CCNBA stall had a lot going on throughout the day and was a great success. The stall had a variety of hives on display and a hive relocation and a honey extraction were conducted. Lots of people stopped by the stall to talk to members about hives in their houses, native bees as pollinators and the keeping of bees.
Keep an eye on the Cassowary Coast Native Bee Association Facebook page or your emails for confirmation of the date and address for the next meeting.
Kind Regards, Liz Lang, Secretary
