CancelledBee a Pollinator

Due to forecasted Extreme fire danger rating for this Saturday 18th March, we've regretfully had to cancel Open Farm Day.


This Workshop is part of Nillumbik Council's Open Farm Day at Edendale

Join Katrina Forstner, Founder and Educator from Buzz and Dig, to learn all about bees!

This session will introduce families to native bees, pollination and increasing urban biodiversity. This workshop aims to bring joy and wonder to children as they self discover insect biodiversity and urban sustainability on a micro level in the garden. Nurturing a sense of respect and excitement to living creatures whilst learning about the important role bees have to enable us to grow healthy food. 

Get to make some bee seed bombs to take home and plant in the garden to attract pollinators to your backyard.

If you have accessibility requirements please contact to discuss
