What’s it all about?

Did you know there are over 13,000 beekeepers in Victoria? The majority of these are recreational bee keepers running 1 or 2 hives enjoying the pollination, honey and wax that their girls create.

You can keep bees in your backyard* but it’s best to be fully aware of what you are taking on before you start.

Come and join Jen – an urban beekeeper – to run you through the ins and outs of keeping bees in suburban settings. 

What will we cover?

In this class we’ll cover:

  • Why beekeeping is soooo interesting
  • The regulations – yes there are rules*
  • The costs.
  • The commitment – time, effort, responsibilities
  • Bring along any questions you have!


  • Wheelchair accessible venue
  • Gender neutral bathrooms
  • Discounted Early Bird Tickets
  • Free Tickets for First Nation Attendees
  • Auslan Interpreters Upon Request
